Small fish (~5cm) that were in a temporary pool of water in a deciduous forest! There were so many of them in this small, shallow pool of water, which was not being fed by any water source aside from rain. I wondered how they got there and were able to survive considering this pool of water is often dry and only fills up when there has been consistent rainfall.


Small, temporary woodland pool.


Not great pictures, I realize. But, I wanted to post them for the sake of documentation and because I thought it was interesting and odd to find fish in a small pool of water in the forest.
