Another microscope video I made. This is from another sample of stagnant water.
This is a close up of a microorganism called a ciliate. I'm not sure of the exact type ... possibly Euplotes.
Unfortunately for this guy, the water between the microscope slide and the coverslip started to spread out and so the distance between the two decreased causing him to get squashed. You will see a sudden release of internal fluid and organelles to the top right and evetually leakage all around its body.
Not a pleasant way to go.
