7-inch transparent crustacean, eh?
What color when cooked?


I sometimes wonder what effect photographing these creatures with what even to us surface-dwellers is bright illumination has on these creatures with their abyssal-adapted sensitive visual systems. Are they paralysed with pain after the flash, or perhaps permanently blinded?


Thanks Andrea for providing waking nightmares.


Was expecting this:


“The bad news is, he’s blind.”
