Description

Scanning electron micrograph of a Vaginicola, a single-celled creature found in pond water. The cell (green) secretes and lives within a protective casing called a lorica into which it can contract. The cell is attached to the bottom of the lorica and has hair-like cilia at the end, which it uses for feeding. Scanning electron micrograph 2000 Collection Wellcome Images.
