Re: Amoeba eat algae

A great capture, Francisco! It's the kind of scene that one could do microscopy for years and never see. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Lacrymaria olor pierde y regenera su cabeza

Incredible video, Francisco! Which of the two "necks" shown in the thumbnail do you think became the neck at the end of the video? From my watching of the video, it seemed that the originally shorter neck developed into the final neck but I'm not sure.

Thanks, CE. I felt sorry for the little micro-conjugant and chose music that was a bit on the sad side.

Re: Another amoeba video

Nice video, Radazz. It looks like a monopodial Amoeba, but don't quote me. I made a video of what I think was a monopodial a while back and just titled the video "Amoeba," playing it safe. Under the YouTube video I put, "Some kind of monopodial Amoeba?" Really playing it safe there! :D Here's my vid...

Re: Carchesium - a colonial peritrich

Interesting video! Fascinating to see how they retract as a group. Makes me wonder how they communicate with each other? Maybe just reacts to the neighbor moving? Thanks, hvk! I have read that each cell can contract its stalk individually. It may be that whatever causes one to contract is likely to...

Thanks, Bruce! I didn't notice that the stalk contracted in a zig-zag manner rather than spirally. (Not that I would have recognized it as Haplocaulus even if I had noticed. :D )

Outstanding! You have captured some HUGE meals in your videos and this is one of the best. I don't think I've ever seen the ciliate that did the eating. Was your sample from a local pond? Thank you!
