Included here are the VIDCAPS and Video from the Lasater Ranch water sample on day eight!
Just some general comments here! Had an organism here I would call like StichotrichaPic! There are motile spherical colonial cells which I take to be chrysophytes like SynuraPic! There was a transparent Rotifer like organismPic! There appears to be a Zoothamnium genus here in which the whole colony contracts at once due to a continuous branching spasmonemePic! One large protozoa I take to be Burasia truncatellaPic! There was one Protozoa I was not sure ofPic! It has a very distinct interior! The cytoplasm appears to be in constant fluid mixing kind of like the thermal votexes of the surface of the sun! Otherwise, the Lasater temporary water had all the aquatic organisms as the others have had! There were also a large number of various sized nematods on the bottom of the container! I have make a large number of Quicktime movies at the end with most of the distinct protozoa I observed!
VIDCAPS From Day Eight from the Lasater Ranch!!
QuickTime Movies from Day Eight from Water Samples Taken at Lasater Ranch!!!
Filter feeders and perhaps Synura!
Small flagellate with distinct sides!!!
Tube shaped Ciliate with smaller anterior end!!!
A Colonial Zoothamnium genus!!
Same as about but smaller with less footage!!
Large Unknown egg shaped ciliate!!!
A transparent Rotifer like organism!!!
Unknown well ciliated protozoa with a hump!!
Large ciliate which is tear drop shapped and appears to have its cytoplasm in constant motion and agitation! Looks like something from the Animated movie Yellow Submarine 1!!
Medium ciliate that uses its ventral cirri for movrment over a substrate like hypotrichs!!
Perhaps Burasia truncatella! Looks like something from the Animated movie Yellow Submarine 2!!
This Is A Wolfbat359 Production!!!
