Ciliate protozoan. High-speed footage of a ciliate protozoan moving through river water. Another, smaller motile organism moves about nearby. Ciliate protozoa are tiny single-celled aquatic organisms. They feed on bacteria and decaying organic matter. Locomotion is achieved by the rhythmic beating of many hair-like cilia on the surface of the cell. Sample taken from the River Teifi, Wales, UK.
