Caption: Peritrich ciliate protozoa. Light microscope footage of several ciliates of the subclass Peritrichia. These 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 darkfield illumination.
