What is this animal? Megan found this, I photographed it, and I know what it is, at least what phylum it belongs to, but boy was this neat to see in the water of the Olentangy River. I had seen videos of this creature, and I've seen this creature in person, but never quite looking like this. So here's the thing. I want to see what other people think it is. Feel free to chime in and speculate. Just click on the comment picture below the last photo.
