What is This Creature?
Is it some sort of Crayfish, Shrimp, Super Mutant?
Great scientists are curious about the world they live in. Getting into the rock pools on the edge of the Island Bay Marine Reserve our students made the types of discoveries great scientists with their sharpened senses and substantial powers of observation might make. A very aggressive creature: was it guarding its corner of the rock pool or was it hunting prey when it raised its two pronged pincers and attacked?
Can you see it in the rock pool? It is actually staring at the photographer!
We asked Christine from the Marine Centre what it was but she said she had never before seen anything like it. Have we discovered a new genus? Can you help us to identify this rock pool inhabitant?
