Sphagnum moss

We found this stunning sphagnum moss whilst hiking in the Welsh Snowdonia range.

The environment was extremely damp and boggy, and almost impossible to walk in.

Sphagnum moss can hold up to 26 times it’s dry weight. You can learn about it more If you look here.

Nothing eats this moss, but it creates an essential habitat for many microscopic plants and animals.

See if you can spot any on your walks.
