Caption: Rotifer. Light microscope footage of a Brachionus sp. freshwater rotifer. This species can also be found in brackish (slightly salty) or alkaline waters. The protruding crown-shaped corona (top) possesses beating hair-like cilia which create a current that sweeps food, such as unicellular green algae, into the mouth. Filmed with differential interference contrast illumination.
