Feeling Crabby

Feeling Crabby

A female crab—with orange eggs tucked into her abdomen—was collected from the deep seafloor  during an Alvin dive in May 2005. Researchers return frequently to places like the Galapagos Rift to uncover new life forms, which seem to appear on almost every trip, and to examine how seafloor creatures and their environment develop over time.
