Caption

Vorticella protozoa, artwork. This ciliate protozoan (three present here) consists of a bell-shaped head (bottom) and a stalk that is anchored to a substrate (top). The cilia (tiny hair-like structures) attached to the head are used to capture food and also for movement. Vorticella live in both marine and fresh water, and mostly consume bacteria.
