The seventh chapter of the “Inhabitants of the microworld” series is called “Born in a drop”.
To hatch is the most important moment in the life of any organism, also the microscopic ones. In this chapter of the series we can see the very moment of the hatching of two animals, the chironomid non biting midge and the fresh water snail. A moment reached after a period of embryonic development inside the protective eggshell. From this moment the newborns start their lives in a world plenty of dangers, and only a few will reach the adult stage.
This is the seventh chapter of a series that will bring to us a video per day during this confinement forced by COVID-19.
We hope that you enjoy this initiative, which gives access to a documentary series for free to the world, and you share it with everyone you think will possibly be interested.
