Deep Crustacean Gatherings – videos

[From the INDEEP mailing list]

Looks like a well-attended deep-sea crab party may have destroyed one of our INDEEP recruitment frames deployed by Ocean Networks Canada last year.  Extraordinary behaviour indeed!

If you enjoyed the above crustacean video, also take a look at this immense army of spider crabs during their annual swarming event in shallow waters (which in my opinion should be featured in the next James Cameron Avatar film):

Thank you Gary Poore (Museum Victoria, Australia) for sharing.
