hermit crabGood morning readers, above is a deep-sea hermit crab that was found and collected below 700 feet! The crab is around two inches wide and has glowing blue-eyes which blow me away!! This crab had small little anemones all over his shell which are almost impossible to see from these tiny web-sized photos. The shell he or she was in looked like it was covered in sand and the anemones were just living under it or stuck to it, you can’t even see the original shell anymore, he may have been hauling that around for awhile! These blue-eyed hermits are truly amazing, you just wouldn’t ever think a crab would have such beautiful eyes!!  MORE
