A large red crab serving as a host to what appear to be numerous hitch-hiking barnacles sits atop a rock outcrop. A small red crab is at the rocks base while a rather stout deep sea fish cruises by on the left. Marine snow, detritus falling from upper regions is illuminated in these bottom waters.

6683 thumbnail picture
A brownish shrimp and a lithodid crab in close proximity. The crab is possibly thinking about a shrimp dinner. His left claw seems a bit opener than in image expl8154. Perhaps it is getting ready to pounce. The red laser dots are 10 cm apart (about 4 inches) giving an indication of the relative sizes of crab and shrimp.

6688 thumbnail picture
A large swimming shrimp. A small coral bush and a holothurian are seen below.
6689 thumbnail picture
Large red squid near seafloor. Possibly Pholidoteuthis adami. The red color serves as camouflage as the only light found in the depths of the ocean is blue. Blue light does not reflect off red animals and makes them much more difficult to see unless having a source of bright white light such as on the Little Herc ROV. Pholidoteuthis adami.
6690 thumbnail picture
Two large squid attempting to mate in the Gulf of Mexico. The male squid is upside down on top of the female, holding her just behind the fin. The white structure is the end of the male reproductive tract which he is using to implant sperm packages in the female. Oddly, where he is implanting his spermatophores is nowhere near where the eggs come out. Pholidoteuthis adami.
