New York’s drinking water is some of the most delicious in the land, and it’s filled with microscopic shrimp.

They’re called copepods. This is one a guy took photos of under a microscope after H&E staining the sample. They’re 1-2 mm long, transparent, have two sets of antenna, and feast on mosquito larvae. What are they doing in the water supply? Well, New York’s water is of such high quality that it isn’t required by the EPA to mechanically filter its H2O, which means you get to gulp down these cute little guys with every glassful. Bottoms up!
