Another cool site showing up close of the vibrio and the coccus which is what I assume those cute little color changing spheres are a type of.

Which also describes two other shapes from earlier. The larger stiffer cork screw like organism and the lighting filament like cork screw one.

"Spirilla have a helical shape and fairly rigid bodies.

Spirochetes have a helical shape and flexible bodies. Spirochetes move by means of axial filaments, which look like flagella contained beneath a flexible external sheath.
