New species alert
I love it when scientists find new speices. The fact that we, as the dominant and all knowing creatures we think we are, are still finding unbeknownst species always impresses me. The vastness of life – oh what a treat.
Discovered by Ho Ping-ho in Taiwan, there is a new species of crab being dubbed the “strawberry crab.” I love the LA Times interpretation of it, saying it is reminiscent of the Super Mushroom of Super Mario Bros. fame.
Whatever it ends up being classified and named as, I consider it a gift that we were able to catch, document, and now forever remember. A true gift indeed.
Be Rad. Enjoy.
