See a single-celled organism turn to nothing while you ponder death

James Weiss, a QA analyst, loves to watch single-celled organisms in his spare time and share the recorded videos with the world.

Recently, he shared a video which shows a single-celled eukaryote named “Blepharisma” struggling desperately to stay alive and then wither to nothing.

In an interview with Gizmodo, James Weiss states that he spends hours watching these creatures and though their death is not uncommon, this one shook him due to it’s desparate attemp to recover and then just die and vanish like it never existed.

See Below.

According to James Weiss, it was not possible to determine the cause of death, however, the likely reason is either a virus or apoptosis.
