The Coolest Crab, in the Hottest places.

Check out this little guy!

It is my new fascination. The idea that life can exist so effortlessly in such extreme environments is truly inspirational. For some reason I seem to like the so called Yeti Crab over all of the luminous, Las Vegas-style jellyfish and fierce looking deep sea fish. It is like an elder, or a kind of wizard of the deep…

These little guys are almost like Shinto spirits of the underwater volcanoes. Living off of the most basic forms of bacteria that come right out of the ground above the pacific-ocean ridge, or the “ribbon of life”. Underwater exploration is revealing the most exciting discoveries of our time, and I can’t wait to see what they find next!
