Spiral bacteria, the snakes water drop

Post by carlos.uruguay »

In this video we see two very different types of spiral bacteria.
The first much thinner and less rigid body, the second larger diameter, more rigid body and flagella at the ends clearly visible.
Both found in Tala, freshwater stream, Route 3, Km 88, Uruguay, South America.
Phase contrast and polarized light obliquely
