The tank never fails to disappoint

The night before we left for the airport, we found an enormous, hairy crab in the refugium. Kevin called me downstairs, and we took photos with a finger for focus and scale. Woah.

We’d caught a crab about a year ago and let him loose in the refugium, and then he disappeared. I’m guessing that this is the guy — he’s huge. He was really speedy once he got spooked, but amazing that it took a year before we found him. I still can’t guess how he made it up the 21″ wall of the baffles. Crazy!

Here’s a shot with his eyes.

Creepy, no? 🙂
