Going somewhere? Juvenile cancer crabs hitch rides on sea nettles, dropping off as jellies get closer to shore. It’s the beach or bust for these travelers! Thanks to Instagrammer @reesies87 for this fun video!
Who knew crabs could be so cool? We have two Puget Sound king crabs in our crab exhibit. Bright orange when juveniles, they develop red and purple patches as they age, and are occasionally found as far south as Monterey.
Older than dinosaurs? Indeed! Horseshoe crabs have been around for hundreds of millions of years and are said to be “living fossils.” You can view these tiny, quarter-size juveniles now in our “Secret Lives of Seahorses” special exhibition. Happy Monday!
