Enchanted by the Black-eyed Hermit Crab

Haida Gwaii, May 2010

The whales and bears on the B.C. coast get a lot of attention, being what we sometimes call “charismatic megafauna”.

But this rich coastline is full of amazing creatures who may be small, like this black-eyed hermit crab, but they sure are charismatic.

This creature came up in our trap one morning in Haida Gwaii and stole all the attention from some beautiful Dungeness crabs.

We think you’ll love it, too!
