From the Two Oceans Aquarium Flickr Group: In a crab shell

Two Oceans Aquarium

Last week, one of our giant spider crabs moulted. It was an amazing experience for everyone privileged enough to witness it. This image shows the new, soft, pink body of the crab as it gets ready to step out of the old shell. Isn’t nature simply amazing? Photo courtesy anikha2010.

Been to the Aquarium lately? We’d love to see what you saw! If you have images that you’d like to share with us, join the Two Oceans Aquarium Flickr group and you could see your picture on our blog!
