Caption: Paramecium dividing. Light microscope footage of a ciliate protozoan (Paramecium caudatum) undergoing binary fission. This is a form of asexual reproduction where the cell divides into two identical daughter cells. Paramecium are abundant in water and soil. They move by the rhythmic beating of many hair-like cilia, and feed mainly on bacteria.
