    Chrono,

    Yeah, I read that article this morning. I have to admit, I was a bit annoyed. They really said very little about the squid, let alone anything really useful about the crab as well. Ah well, Discover always offers us the chewy bits of popular science. Though I will admit, sensitivity to UV is interesting. Good call on posting this.

    Glad I could post. It's been a while since I did something marine-life oriented. :wink:


    But it bugs me why no further info on the crab and squid are posted.

    They may post more later CW......I have as big a curiousity (and a decided lack of self preservation instinct!) as anyone I guess, but even I would have scarpered in front of a storm like Katrina! It could take quite some time to get back on site and pull up the cameras to have a squizz plus these really shy deepwater critters can be maddeningly elusive..........right Steve, Kat & Co :twisted:
