Caption: Light micrograph of the cyrtophorid ciliate Trithigmostoma cucullus. Trithigmostoma feeds on Diatoms and other small algae, ingested via an oral basket, partially seen here on left side of the animal. Several green food vacuoles are visible at the right side of the animal. In the middle of the image the macronucleus is visible, in this case containing several parasitic bacteria. Microscopic contrast technique : Differential interference contrast. Magnification 650x when printed 10 centimetres wide.
