Hot spring bacteria. Light microscopy footage of extremophile bacteria in water from a hot spring. These bacteria live in an oxygen-free environment and are resistant to high temperatures that can reach above 70 degrees Celsius. This sample is from a geothermal area (West Thumb Basin) in Yellowstone National Park, USA. Yellowstone hot springs and geysers contain thermophile (heat-loving) microbes, such as cyanobacteria and extremophile bacteria.
