About Rotifer

Wheel animals or rotifers are common in rivers, lakes, puddles, and gutters. They are one of the smallest living animals. Rotifers feed on protozoans and other tiny lifeforms that they catch. They do this by beating a crown of cilia to draw water into their mouths. During dry periods, these animals become dormant. Once they are dormant, they can stay inactive for many years.
