Is This a New Species? | PBS Science Video

February 5, 2017

This is the first-ever video of what we’re calling the “hermit crab caterpillar”! We’re pretty sure this strange caterpillar is a NEW SPECIES. We went to the Peruvian Amazon to see amazing things, but we never expected this 🙂
But that makes me wonder: What *is* a species anyway? And how do you know if you’ve found a new species?

This is an installment of the PBS – It’s OK to be Smart series. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.  [Chuck Almdale]
