Caption: Microscope footage of the rhythmically-beating cilia on a ciliate prozotoan. Cilia are small hair-like projections that assist the organism in movement, by propelling it through water, and in the capture of prey, typically bacteria and algae, by wafting them towards its mouth. Single-celled ciliates such as this are ubiquitous in aquatic environments.
