I'm not sure which forum to post this photo of a hydra, so please move it if I have it wrong.

There are several of these "hanging around" one of my cultures. This culture is from a small tributary of the Santa Ana River in Irvine, Calif.

The hydra is a bit difficult to see, but I just thought the colors were kind of pretty.

Interesting, and it is (from what little I know about them) a remkarably big hydra. I hope you don't go swimming in this container! :lol:
