Tetrahymena thermophila dispersal morphs move substantially faster than normal morphs. Shown are the positions of two T. thermophila cells at three successive time points (6, 7 and 8 seconds from start in the movie accompanying our previous paper [30]; picture background is for time = 6 seconds), illustrating the much higher swim speed and net displacement of elongated dispersal morphs (circles) compared to round sedentary morphs (squares).
