For a class of 30 students. One of the first animals observed by Leeuwenhöek in 1703. Called wheel animals because of their conspicuous "corona," a region of dense cilia at the anterior end that creates a vortex, pulling food particles into the mouth. Also known for their leech-like manner of locomotion. Reproduction is exclusively by parthenogenesis; males are unknown in most species. Very hardy; will survive up to 2 weeks in shipping container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always fun! These critters are always fun to show the students. They are large enough that they are easy to find, and they are very active. A+ for rotifers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rotifer for long-term use Arrived in late February for an intro. animal feeding lab, kept and used again in late March for an animal locomotion lab, put one jar out for student review for lab practical exam first week of April; still going strong with no special care (other than leaving the lid slightly ajar out of sunlight) in mid-April. Other rotifer species do not last this long.
