Video of one of my crazy crabs releasing young!! yuck

I turned off the main lights before bed and just before I was going to switch off the actinics, guess what i saw.... one of these crabs releasing hundreds of little baby crab swimmers!!! Auuuugh!

It walked up with a sort of "hatch" upen on its underside with the little buggers wriggling and vibrating in the hatch opening thing. Then the crab pointed skyward and started shooting them out.

Sorry for the small video.. I took it with my mavica camera.

Anyway here is my link, I posted it on my soon-to-be-done web site.

ACk I can't see it, but if they are doing it in yours then they are doing it in mine! Noooooo. Aquacultured rock is amazingly beautiful but has it's drawbacks.

Ah yes I forgot to mention it is about 1.3 meg so it will take a bit to load if yer using dialup.

I am HOPING that the majority of the lil swimmers got caught in the filter/eaten by my clowns.

Otherwise my pet mantis will be a busy lil feller later this summer.

Snap snap snap!
