Video of rotifer eating.

I'm used to seeing Bdelloidea rotifers mostly, which are pretty motile, so hard to capture for very long, but I found this rotifer hanging out on some sediment. Not sure on the species, but the specimen did a good job of showing the current they create, as well as the rejecting of large particles that would be unable to be consumed.
