Thuricola; how it differs from Vaginicola & Cothurnia

Post by billporter1456 »

Here’s a little video featuring Thuricola, an organism which lives within a lorica. Its lorica has a nifty feature, a valve-like door that prevents intruders. Thuricola often lives in pairs and as with many lorica dwellers, it can retract within the safety of its home in a small fraction of a second.

I am prone to mistakes when it comes to identifications, so any corrections will be appreciated!

Nicely done, Bill. I'm starting to think you're having way too much fun with all this...

Thanks, Tom! :D

It wouldn't be nearly as much fun if I didn't get some comments such as yours!

Hi Carlos, I guess my 30+ years as a professor makes it almost impossible for me to resist trying to teach! :) :)
