Included here are the VIDCAPS and Video from the Lasater Ranch water sample on day Forty-Three! I was shooting some stills and finding that the second Expomet Photographic outfit for my Jena Val system was also failing! Well what is one to do for East German Company Equipment that West Germany bought and shut down after the Wall Fell - So, I am told!! In any case, I saw a massive bit of throbbing angry flesh in what appeared to be a cage! By the time I set-up the Panasonic Camera, the Mass of flesh had burst and the cage looked, perhaps more like some remains of a dead insect whose body parts lay strewn about the area!! Later I was just examining the Lasater water sample, to see what was there on day Forty Three! I again saw a massive outrage of throbbing flesh! I only had questionable Slides and Plastic Cover slips - Carolina Biological supply where are you; but decided to hook up the camera and do a shoot!
After I had hooked up to the camera, I found the Massive chunk of Outraged Flesh was much smallerPic! It had apparent budded off several smaller Units such asPic!! The original organism was in a dense strata so it was hard to examine it very closely! On a second slide I observed this rather large ciliatePic! I quite frankly have no idea of the identity of either organism! In this larger second organism, a close up showed a lot of the usual suspects ingested by the organism Pic, Pic and Pic! This second large organism did not have projecting extrusions which budded off to new organisms! I also observed a large AmoebaPic! This Amoeba did not quite look like or act like A. proteus, so I am not quite sure of its true idenity! For instance, this Amoeba seemed to fix one side of the plasmalemma of pseudopod to the substrate so that the flowing granular endoplasm would torque the Amoeba around to flow in a new direction! Much like a tank turns! At least I don't remember this behavior in A. proteus! Course, I could be way off on this!
