(GIF) I found a female or hermaphrodite nematode. It’s hard to tell the difference sometimes! However, it definitely is not male, since the needle-like tip tells us this nematode is capable of producing eggs. If anyone out there knows more about nematodes feel free to let me know what sex this one is!
Is this C. elegans? It looks like a hermaphrodite, since you can’t really see the hook-like tail that the males have. Males are also usually longer. I like to follow the trail that the tail makes on the agar to make sure that they are nice and pointy.
I have no idea :(
It’s just a random nematode I came across in a sample of mud.
