Caption: Cyrtolophosis sp. protozoan. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a ciliated protozoan (Cyrtolophosis sp.). Several cilia (white) are seen projecting from its lorica (shell-like body covering, blue). Ciliated protozoa are primitive organisms which live in water or soil, and feed on other organisms. They devour their prey by phago- cytosis, engulfing it in a vacuole in their cell body. Magnification: x4500 at 5x7cm size.
