Oh, I love the idea of Daptobacter, and I am sure that there are beasties like that out there. But the problem is that no one has yet cultivated the organism (or, at least, has published on it and is willing to distribute it to other researchers). It is a very tough issue to show predatory behavior solely from EM. But there are many more tools available now: look at the fine work with Nanoarchaeum and Igniococcus.

So I look forward to seeing more "types" of predation cracked with microbial systems that we can study in lab.
