Tardigrada

For those seeking Tardigrade for observation.

I find a tree with lichen (obviously not protected). I collected lichen from the bark of linden Tilia sp. Tardigrades. In the moss I watched them much less.
It’s best to start by observing any “lumps”. This is where they usually hide. They move relatively slowly and like to stop and not move. They especially freeze when we move the sample. It is worth setting a “clot” in the field of view … wait and observe. They will be:) … numerous 🙂

Good luck.
