What animal can swim upside-down, backwards or on its side? The gammarid! There are different species of gammarids, depending on the kind of water where they live: marine, brackish and freshwater species. Just like copepods, they are an important source of food for many other animals because there are so many of them. They are true bottom-dwelling animals.
