August Encounters

For August we start off with a Sea Biscuit trying to escape being eaten by a large Sea Star.  Other highlights are  Skeleton Shrimp covered with tiny babies, a stunning red Longlure Frogfish, and a “naked” Decorator Crab.  The Decorator Crab has just finished molting and therefore has no decorations.  You can see the tiny velcro like hairs on the body and arms that it uses to attach living sponges and hydroids for camouflage.
