Tardigrada skin

Post by bernhardinho »

Hi folks,

found in a pond sample: skin of a tardigrada with four eggs. You can see the offspring already. ( I'm not talking about the rotifers, of course, although that would be sensationel...)

Obj. 25xPlan, Leitz Periplan 10x, Coolpix 990, oblique illumination
