Damselfly nymph. The first encounter
October 10th, 2016
I got some freshwater plants (for my aquarium) from the lake of Central Park, NYC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFRT9EGJ2Y0
One water creature stands out among the innumerable amount of tiny water creatures that come along with plants.
I identify this creature - thanks to the help of many YouTubers in the comments of my previous videos about the dragonfly nymph.
This creature is a damselfly nymph.
Damselfly nymphs are predators.
They eat small aquatic creatures like daphnia.
I have a lot of tiny creatures to feed the nymph!
The damselfly nymph has three fins at the end of its tail.
Those fins are gills!
It moves like a bug and swims like a fish!
I let the nymph stay in my 10 gallon aquarium for now.
There is a chance it may develop into a damselfly and teach me and my kid some cool stuff about nature.
Have fun and happy damselfly :)
