Peranema flagellate swimming, light microscopy footage. Peranema is a flagellated protist commonly found in freshwater habitats. It has two flagella, one used for swimming. The other is used to feel around its local environment hunting food, and thus functions as a sensory organ. It feeds on live prey, such as yeast, bacteria and other flagellates.
