Any ideas on what this might be? It had gills of some sort?
Found in a little pond
So, would this go under the "fish" category?
Thank you, John. :)
You should classify it under invertebrates, since it is an arthropod, not a fish.
Great spot Teresa!Now that you know the species please could you also add the scientific name & a reference link so this can come off the "unknowns" list, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anostraca Thanks!
Clement- You rock! You totally made my night. After researching in the right direction, these actually look like fairy shrimp, fresh water version of brine shrimp. :) It all makes sense now!! Thank you!!!
what youve got here is a type of brine shrimp. they spend their whole life swimming on their backs and feed on plankton. These are also sold as pet "sea monkeys"
