Fairy Shrimp! Wonderful freshwater shrimp!
I went out herping one night time within the woods in Pottstown Pa to movie a video for Nature Now, after visiting our good pal Nicole. I discovered nothing aside from the standard toads, spring peepers and different vernal pool critters. I noticed a damselfly larva swim by so I picked it up for a more in-depth look. Low and behold, it was a fairy shrimp! I used to be so excited to lastly discover these branchipoda after eager to see them since I used to be younger. In some areas they’re imagined to be widespread however I’ve by no means discovered them earlier than. They’re about an inch and a half lengthy and really neat to look at. They’re an essential meals supply for a lot of birds and fish.
