Moulting in Action
by brian @ 12:41:48 - [perma-link]

I was watching the dwarf crayfish just now and one of them was looking weird. It was laying on its side, rocking back and forth. I thought it was sick, then noticed the shell peeling away from the head. It very slowly pulls the head back out of the front, then it seems to jump out the back between the head and tail. If you pause the video and step through at the end, you can see it pop out, swim a stroke away, pause and then jump out of view with another stroke. So cool!
