Anthophysa is freed

Post by carlos.uruguay »

We have already filmed Anthophysa in another video.
Group of small oval and transparent beings equipped with a long flagellum and another very short straight almost visible in the phase contrast video
Anthophysa does not measure more than 10um but likes to live in community and they join forming spheres.
Among all built a 'trunk' gelatinous in a dark yellow color product of the absorption of minerals and salts.
that are attached to algae and detritus.
Seeing them a little increase appear to a magical tree with crystal branches.
Sometimes the group separates of the gelatinous foot and begins
to dance for the water drop looking for its food: the bacteria.
Sample taken from Tala, freshwater stream, Route 3, Km 88, Uruguay, South America.
Free internet sound effects.
Polarized oblique light.
