What They Eat
The vorticella eats bacteria and small protozoans . They use their cilia to sweep prey into their mouth like openings.
Note the suction cup at the top.
Note that the center two Vorticellae are shaped like balloons.
Vorticellae Connected to Substance
Note that the Vorticellae are anchored to a base.
The Vorticella has both sexaul and asexual reproduction
The vorticella movement is unique. It does not actually move, because it is attatched to something, as described in where it lives. The stalk of the vorticella is curled up, but then unfurls quickly, sending the vorticella shooting out.
