Strobilidium disturbs the hunting of Pleuronema

A ciliate called Pleuronema is hiding between particles waiting for food. It is driven away by a Strobilidium which repeatedly jumps into Pleuronema's hiding place.


Commentary by Prof. Yuji Tsukii, Hosei University
The organism hiding between particles is Pleuronema marinum.
