The first tardigrade I've ever managed to find! It was in moss in a house gutter, was pale brown with dark markings, opaque rather than transparent. Hard to make out too much detail with my 20x binocular microscope, but could clearly see its stumpy little legs, moving quite actively but not propelling it across the moss with any great speed. Couldn't see any cirri. They always look quite rigid in pictures, but its body was quite flexible.

During the molting phase the tardigrade mother deposits her eggs in the shed skin to provide a protective shelter. This shows the cuticula with several developing eggs.

It's hard to take a picture of these guys - they never stop moving. Found with many friends grazing on some moss.

This tardigrade was clear with green gut contents. I found it in Bryum capillare.

I think it had two claws on each of its 8 legs.
