This one features many microbes and worse things cavorting to a classic '70s-porn musical track, but the highlights are extremely close shots of Philodina rotifers sucking food-beings into their gullet-holes. Since they're partially transparent, you can see their throat-jaws (the "mastax") grinding up the little wads of algae. Also clearly visible is the glue-emitting two-toed "foot" of the Philodina, a bodily organ shared, like the rotary mouth-cilia, by all rotifers, however drastically different they all look from species to species.
