Over the summer, my family has left our backyard pool unattended and as a 
result various little ceatures have developed. I decided to take a closer look 
at a certain group of animals in the water. After some research, I've come to 
believe that they are fairy shrimp. Their characteristics match those I've read 
about. However, I haven't heard of specific cases in which these creatures 
inhabited human swimming pools. Is this normal? Is it possible these are indeed 
fairy shrimp?
