My dead skin from my thumb Bio60_2019

This is kind of nasty but i had a hang nail on my thumb so I thought what better to view under the microscope than my very own cells? So i placed this piece of dead skin on the slide then put couple drops of water on and put a cover over it. The skin itself seems to have multiple coloration and I think that maybe I can see individual cells. What amazed me is mark in the middle that looks like some sort of organism. It looks like it has a tail and a body but this could just be a shadow some external variable. Very cool though
