Tuesday Crustie: King with a hermit’s past

An artistic rendition of the red king crab, Paralithodes camtschaticus. Many know them as being featured in a certain reality television show on Discovery Channel, but there are many scientifically interesting features about them, too. For instance, these massive “kings” are actually most closely related to hermit crabs.

Don’t like Alaska? You can find this poster promoting several Alaskan cities and places in the contiguous 48 states, too.
