Rotifera

Image-1-2

 

This picture of a rotifer was taken through a microscope of a sample of substrate that I had collected near a lake on the border of NC and SC. This photo was taken around 2:00pm.

I am unable to identify it past the phylum classification, Rotifera.

Fun Fact!

According to Microscopy UK, “for most species of rotifers, no males are known!” (http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/indexmag.html?http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/artnov99/rotih.html)
