an Oligochaete Worm
|Oligochaete worms (Phylum Annelida, Class Oligochaetae) have bristles which are used to grip when creeping between water plants or when on the bottom of a pond. Like many pond organisms they are very transparent. Their internal organs are clearly visible. Their stomach always give a nice glimpse of their prey.|
