Caption: Brachionus sp. rotifer feeding, light microscopy with dark field illumination. Rotifers are microscopic aquatic animals that are related to roundworms. The hair-like cilia surrounding the rotifer's mouth (upper left) are used to trap food particles that are then drawn into the pharynx and chewed by the jaws.
