Caption

Polarised light micrograph of a Polyarthra sp. rotifer. Also called wheel animals, rotifers are common in freshwater environments. They use their cilia (microscopic hairs) and two paddle-like projections for locomotion. They are surprisingly complex on the inside: they have a brain, reproductive organs, a bladder and a digestive system. They are omnivorous, eating bacteria, debris or small protozoans. Magnification: x670 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
