“The earth has music for those who listen.”

“Not just beautiful, though--the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they're watching me.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

two thing I didn’t know  (and probably you too) about the giant isopod (Bathynomus sp) swims very well, and digs burrow.

A important detail is the two red dots are from lasers mounted on the ROV and are 10 cm apart (this techique is called photogrammetry)

Our New Arrival
The little loggerhead sea turtle hatchling rescued by our colleagues in North Carolina is now on exhibit in the Open Sea galleries.
This #TravelingTurtle arrived last Friday and it’s now settling in after its exhibit home was spiffed up a bit.
The youngster hatched in mid-August, three days after its egg was rescued as part of a routine nest excavation performed by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. The nest was located in the town of Emerald Isle, not too far from the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, where the turtle was raised.
When it left North Carolina, it weighed less than half a pound and was just over 4 inches long.
The loggerhead that we returned to North Carolina will be released offshore in the Gulf Stream in the near future. We’ll share photos of our first #TravelingTurtle going back to the wild.
Many thanks to our friends at USAirways who expedited the turtles’ travels!
Read the saga of both Traveling Turtles.
