For Pacific Mole Crabs It’s Dig or Die | Deep Look Video

March 8, 2018

Pacific mole crabs, also known as sand crabs, make their living just under the surface of the sand, where they’re safe from breaking waves and hungry birds. Some very special physics help them dig with astonishing speed.

This is another installment of the PBS Deep Look series; this installment is adapted from the “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.

After viewing this video, follow the new link which will appear over to “It’s OK to be Smart” for even more fascinating information on slime molds. [Chuck Almdale]
