Brine shrimp, up close and personal


Brine shrimp, take 2

Our brine shrimp buddies survived the night and I invented a new mounting method so as not to squish them! We also got a better handle on lighting and focus conditions which was very exciting. Here we can see the body of the shrimp pulsating – perhaps the heart working hard! We can also see arrays of hairs on its appendages. Wonder if these help with sensing and/or locomotion…
