Caption

Paramecium caudatum feeding, differential interference contrast (DIC) light micrograph. These so-called slipper animalcules belong to the phylum Ciliophora (ciliates). These protists use hair-like cilia for locomotion and for feeding. Paramecium feed on bacteria. The cilia transport food particles into the buccal cavity. When the food enters the cell a food vacuole is formed. Magnification: x400 when printed 10cm high.
