When Rocks Aren't Rocks Because They're Actually A Pile Of Crabs
Researchers were surprised to find a giant cast of crabs off the coast of Panama, because this is the first time they've been found so far south.By Mikah Sargent | April 12, 2016
A group of researchers were studying biodiversity off the coast of Panama when they came across an unfamiliar, murky cloud.
"When we dove down in the submarine, we noticed the water became murkier as we got closer to the bottom. ... We just saw this cloud but had no idea what was causing it," said Jesús Pineda, lead author of the study.
They thought they were looking at sedimentary rocks at first — that is, until the "rocks" started moving.
