May 18, 17     Comments Off on GIANT Deep-Sea Crab found by Smithsonian Institution

Hello readers, I have a monster sized crab for you this morning with one of those faces that only an underwater photographer and it’s mother could love. Many of my long time followers know the love I have for any kind of crab and it’s a love that has grown or come from spending hours or days underwater photographing all kinds of crabs. I tell friends all the time that if they were to watch an octopus or squid underwater they would never eat one again, same thing goes for crabs, they are insanely fascinating to watch underwater and every species not only looks completely different but acts different as well. I apologize in advance for not having depths on all this stuff, I am in the process of getting it but that’s easier said than done, once I do get it I will go back and put that info in all the blogs. Again for those that have been with me for awhile you have seen a lot of different crabs and for those of you interested you can use my search key above to search around and see what I’m talking about. This was another fun find by the Smithsonian Institution using the deep-sea submersible from Substation Curacao and once I get a name on this guy and a depth I will do an update for you.

Have a wonderful day…
