Probably Cyclops adult copepod and its baby

Post by carlos.uruguay »

In this video we see a small freshwater crustacean.
The adult and the baby.
It belongs to the sub-class Copepods.
When is 'baby' is known by the name of 'nauplius'
We assume that this is of the genus Cyclops.
It has a single red eye.
We found it in the 'Cañada Bentancor', 1 km at west of the km 98 of Route 3, Department of San José - Uruguay - South America
Various types of lighting.
