Single-celled Organism Dies

Video   Jun 11, 2019 | Video by Jam's Germs

 

This video captures the fascinating final moments of a single-celled organism, which belongs to the genus Blepharisma.

There are approximately 40 species that belong to the Blepharisma genus, and they are unicellular ciliate protists found in fresh and salt water.

The video was captured by a microorganism enthusiast who creates videos of the microscopic life.
