The 11th chapter of the “Inhabitants of the microworld” series is called “Micro scavengers”.
Carcases of dead animals living in ponds and lakes disappear. It is possible thanks to the restless activity of tiny living beings that find in these carcases its main food. They are, mainly, ciliates as Coleps or Trachelius, which, sometimes, congregate in hihçgh number around the carrions in the same way that vultures or hyaenas made in the macro world.
This is the 11th chapter of a series that will bring to us a video per day during this confinement forced by COVID-19.
We hope that you enjoy this initiative, which gives access to a documentary series for free to the world, and you share it with everyone you think will possibly be interested.
