    Dear Mohammad,
    Initially looking at your title; I thought you were talking about didinium – which several Foldscopers have described before. But this is a whole another beast. I will try to find the species name.

    A simple way to find these beautiful creatures is to look in ponds and stagnant waters. You will be shocked to see how many amazing things are right under our nose.

    Thanks for sharing this curiosity. I am truly stumped with this one. Can’t wait to look for it myself.

    Cheers
    Manu

      Thanks @Manup,

      Your lessons are way of life. I hope if every student can see your videos they are so much valuable and life-changing minutes.
      Definitely, I will not just let the wish out without accompanied hard work. And now I see that no matter where someone starts learning science the good news is that we are all learning and students so let’s live with curiosity. At the end that is what brings us together often!

      This time I was in hurry did not write a lot in the post but as I told Lassiyer below:
      I am looking for learn how to make a culture at home so I can easily find what I look for next time when making workshops. Yes, I can find them in the ponds yet I want to set them commercially.

      I need is to make something like guide what I will show people in the workshops so thats why I am looking to make a culture.

      Meanwhile, I would like to show you my previous post if you have not seen it > https://microcosmos.foldscope.com/?p=147230
      Hope you enjoy it 🙂

      Thanks for your time,

      Best,

    I will post my observations soon on these fellows. Here is how they look under a Foldscope. https://www.instagram.com/p/BufrHRTjZPa/

    You can find these in ponds. They have also be cultured commercially. They are voracious eaters.
