Pelagic red crabs to you and me. Check out this little red goober! Quoting the Monterey Bay Aquarium: “They’re back! Pelagic red crabs — Pleuroncodes planipes (aka tuna crabs, because they’re so tasty to so many fishes) sometimes visit us during El Niño conditions—and they’re here today!”

Homeless Hermies Get Their Shell On

Hermit McCrabbersons find a shell and then use it as a shelter, and to keep predators away. As My Modern Met says, sometimes it’s hard to find shells ’cause hoomins like to collect them. Tokyo artist Aki Inomata decided to make some shell-ters on her own. Now they’re movin’ on up!
