ZOMBIE Rotifer eating in pond water microscope

LOOK AT IT’S STOMACH! This bizarre microscopic organism is the smallest animal on Earth feeding on micro-organisms like motile algae and bacteria. So bizarre!!! It can basically turn into a ZOMBIE and suspend its animation when the water environment dries up. It is basically DEAD for up to 8-10yrs until water rehydrates it and it comes BACK TO LIFE! It can also grab DNA from other organisms like bacteria, and fungi and insert it in it’s genome.
