Caption: Rotifer. Light microscope footage of a Brachionus sp. freshwater rotifer. This species can also be found in brackish (slightly salty) or alkaline waters. Rotifers are divided into three parts; the head (top), trunk and foot (bottom). The protruding crown-shaped corona possesses beating hair-like cilia which create a current that sweeps food, such as unicellular green algae, into the mouth. The foot ends in two toes, which secrete a cement for anchoring the rotifer whilst feeding. Filmed with differential interference contrast illumination.
