Caulobacter crescentus

My name is C. crescentus.
I'm Gram Negative bacteria.
I live in water or in soil, even if there's not much food about.
I'm very good at living in places with little food.

I make 2 daughters when I divide.

One is called a swarmer and has a special tail for moving around.
The other is called a stalked cell and has a long tube with sticky stuff at the end.
Both of these help me survive where other bacteria can't.

Great blog, Emma! I have just commented about it in my (till now boring) blog (Twisted Bacteria). I have used two images from your blog in my post, please tell me if that's not OK for you. Congrats again!
