Video gallery : Rotifer feeding.

by Mike Morgan, UK


The video of a rotifer feeding shown below was taken on a Russian microscope model MBR1 with a JVC colour video camera, see Figure 1. The species is believed to be Rotaria neptunia.

Images were recorded with an Aver Media Center video capture card.

The rotifer was collected from a sample taken from a temporary pond on Dartmoor, see Figure 2.

The video contributor Mike Morgan welcomes any comments.
