Blood moves to the internal structures of the body of Artemia
The heart pumps blood throughout the body. This blood carries oxygen, glucose, and other important nutrients to the cells of the body, where they are used to perform various functions.
Blood moves through the circulatory system
Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. Veins are blood vessels that carry blood to the heart. The circulatory system allows our organ systems to function by providing oxygen and other important nutrients required for metabolism, muscle contraction, and other functions.

Tissues are a collection of cells that act as a functional unit. In this case, cells make up the tissues of the arties and veins.

The celery stalks take up the blue water. The green stalks now look blue.
Cattle egret with food
Cattle egrets are called so because they hang around pastures where cattle graze. The cattle stir up insects and ground-dwelling creatures with their hooves as they move around the pasture. The egret can easily find something to eat this way. This is a commensalistic relationship because the cattle egret benefits while the cattle are neither harmed nor helped.
California Spotted Owl
Owls sit high in trees and use their head-turning ability to search for food such as snakes, spiders, and small rodents (skunks, mice, and chipmunks). They do not eat plants and are considered carnviores.
