Microbes towing aggregates

In this view many aggregates are being pushed or pulled around by an amoeba and some diatoms. We can see an amoeba pulling one particle toward another, and finally many particles are connected together.

Commentary by Prof. Yuji Tsukii, Hosei University
The organism in this video may be Saccamoeba. When amoebas are travelling, other particles often get stuck to the posterior end, which we can see in this video.
