In Canada, we found a colony of aquatic organisms which have never been seen in this climate
In Vancouver (Canada) in a pond in Stanley Park discovered a mysterious slime ball. At first strange and obviously living substance raises many questions because no one understood what it is. It was like a living brain or an alien jelly. Later found out that it was a colony of the so-called freshwater species of bryozoans Pectinatella magnifica.
These are very small invertebrates PERVICHNAYA creatures live in large colonies, and feed on small plankton and Detriot (dead organic matter) and are found mainly in the seas, but there are freshwater species.
Species found in Canada, were previously found only East of the Mississippi river, and now scientists are puzzled by the fact that these creatures are moving so far North, that may be another consequence of global warming.
A colony of bryozoans are fearfully looks pretty, she looks a little like the human brain
Some however claim that the warming has nothing to do with and in fact these creatures lived in Canada before, just was not found.
On slimy ball of bryozoans in the pond Stanley stumbled quite by accident a couple of weeks ago when were working in the Park environmental group.
When he was found one ball, the pond was surveyed and was found by other bryozoans. That is not single and the accidental and purposeful settlement. And apparently bryozoans felt great in the water.
