Francisco,

Perfect subject for video. Very nice. It's the only way to really appreciate how they move about.

Another one of your amazing videos Francisco. For me at least, the fact that it has an eye means it can't be a plant. Not in the way we define plants, at any rate. :)

Hello
Euglena is an animal and plant all at once. Protistis
The eye (estigama) serves to perform photosynthesis like plants and feed.
If the eye does not see the light, cloroplastros disappear, it loses its green color and feed on organic matter, such as an animal-
Curious and enigmatic organism

Hello Francisco

Very nice video and the very clear and clean image. The euglenas are very beautiful when they are big.
