Husbandry know-how of owners

am 27.01.09#1
Leslie Harris war so nett und hat Michael Henke geholfen die konische Spinnenkrabbe (Xenocarcinus
conicus) zu identifizieren und weitere, wie ich finde interessante, Informationen zu geben. Der gelbe Sack sind keine Eier, sondern ein parasitischer Rankenfüßler (Sacculina). Wie unter
de.wikipedia.org nachzulesen ist, ganz schön widerlich. Dagegen ist das Film-Alien schon fast ein angenehmer Zeitgenosse.
