Antarctic Inverts in Boston

How many invert species do you see?

This is a detail from this much larger, gorgeous photo from Antarctica that ran as a feature on this past weekend. The series of 32 images are awe inspiring even if there is only the one invert filled image:


  1. 6, if the pink & the red urchins are different species: 2 urchins, 2 bivalves, 1 seastar, 1 sea lilly, 1 snail to the left of the lilly. 7! 7 species...

    I can't tell if that thing next to the sea star's arm is a crtab's claw. That would make it 8.

  2. Thanks for the link - those photos are stunning.

  3. Great photos! How I wish I can get to see these with my own eyes... :)
