Last week we dived at a magical place on the Cape Horn archipelago. Because there had been virtually no underwater surveys on this remote area, we picked our diving spots haphazardly. Last week we couldn’t have been luckier. We came upon a giant aggregation of the fake king crab Paralomis granulosa. They were in the ground, on top of each other, climbing on the kelp, parachuting from the canopy… like a scene taken off a sci-fi movie.
“Those are called Ironshell Crabs. I’ve read that cooking them into dishes can strengthen the body’s durability!”
“Is that so? Hylians certainly are a resourceful bunch. Still, I’d rather have my hardiness built in; not many enemies will let you take a snack break before battle, Princess.”
Holy crap there’s like 2k of you dorks following me now! Hope you like Zelda and Urbosa, cuz to celebrate after the cut I have both of these seperated into transparent stand alone images~ (Well, Urbosa’s alone - Zelda’s having a nice convo with the crab~). Love ya’ll!
PS: I love these designs but MY GOD SO MANY DETAILS EVERYWHERE!
Edit: Going to edit the backround colors later today probably~ keep looking at it and its just a bit off from what I want~ Done! more blue now to balance things out~
Crab Nebula in technicolor! This new composite view combines data from five different telescopes, showing the celestial object in multiple kinds of light.
The video starts with a composite image of the Crab Nebula, a supernova remnant that was assembled by combining data from five telescopes spanning nearly the entire breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum: the Very Large Array, the Spitzer Space Telescope, the Hubble Space Telescope, the XMM-Newton Observatory, and the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
It then dissolves to the red-colored radio-light view that shows how a neutron star’s fierce “wind” of charged particles from the central neutron star energized the nebula, causing it to emit the radio waves.
The yellow-colored infrared image includes the glow of dust particles absorbing ultraviolet and visible light.
The green-colored Hubble visible-light image offers a very sharp view of hot filamentary structures that permeate this nebula.
The blue-colored ultraviolet image and the purple-colored X-ray image shows the effect of an energetic cloud of electrons driven by a rapidly rotating neutron star at the center of the nebula.
HEY IT’S A FURRY or maybe a pinchy? It’s miss Kali Crab! I haven’t made a ‘sona to draw in like 10 years lmao. anyway I love crabs and I like drawing crab critters so this is her anthro design, there’s also an actual hermit crab design + cool monster crab design that I’ll post later because SHE IS A VERY FAB CRAB
+ DID U KNO: some species of hermit crab form a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones! A crab will peel off an anemone(s) from somewhere and plant it firmly on it’s shell. The stinging tendrils of the anemone provide protection from the crab’s many predators. In return, the anemone gets plenty of scraps from the crab’s meals. IT’S SUPER CUTE and I love it and that’s why she has 2 friends with her lol.
