Caption: Peritrich ciliate protozoan. Light microscope footage of two ciliates of the subclass Peritrichia. These two organisms are bell-shaped and attached to substrate by contractile stalks. Rhythmically beating hair-like cilia create currents which draw food particles into the organisms' funnel-like mouths. Filmed with differential interference contrast illumination.
