Caption: Light micrograph of two slipper-shaped, ciliate protozoans of the genus Paramecium, showing numerous green food vacuoles. The vacuoles contain the remains of the ciliates' last meal, a number of Euglena sp. flagellate protozoans. Paramecium are common inhabitants of water & soil. They move by beating the fine hairs (cilia) which cover their bodies. Magnification unknown.
