Micro-animals

Micro-animals are animals that are microscopic and thus cannot be seen with the naked eye. All these microorganisms are multicellular but none are vertebrates. Microscopic arthropods include dust mites, and spider mites, while microscopic crustaceans include copepods and the cladocera. Another common group of microscopic animals are the rotifers, which are filter feeders that are usually found in fresh water.
