Caption: Mono Lake Brine Shrimp (Artemia monica) are endemic to Mono Lake, California. During the warm summer months, an estimated 4-6 trillion brine shrimp inhabit the lake. They eat single-celled algae and in turn are an important food source for migratory and nesting birds that visit the lake in numbers estimated to be two million. This individual is a female.
