Hydra are in the phylum Cnidaria and are related to jellyfish and sea anemones. Research suggests that hydra are one of the few animals that maintain telomere length and do not go through cellular senescence. Therefore, they are biologically immortal.

We offer a variety of individual Hydra slides demonstrating a range of structures and systems.
