This protozoan is seen here undergoing a fascinating and complex transformation. When the conditions become threatening, as they have here due to the rapidly evaporating water in this sample, the organism is able to quickly section off a piece of itself. Both sections maintain mobility and one section is usually smaller and less dominant than the other, as seen here. It seems to be a survival response to an extremely threatening environment.
