Caption: Rotifer. Light microscopy footage of a rotifer moving through water. Rotifers are microscopic aquatic animals that are related to roundworms. They are found in pond water and help form the base of the food chain. The hair-like cilia surrounding the rotifer's mouth are used to trap food particles. This rotifer has ingested green plant material, seen inside it. This clip was filmed with darkfield illumination.
