CreatureCast - Anurida


To many, Anurida maritima are the clusters of blue specks in rocky tide pools. Upon closer inspection, these specks are intertidal arthropods, with the ability to survive periods of high-tide submersion thanks to their hydrophobic hair and cuticle. Animation and narration are by Pablo Ortiz. He made it as a final project for Invertebrate Zoology, taught by Stefan Siebert, in 2014. The song is "Shaking Off The Rust," by Jared C. Balogh.
This research was supported by the Division Of Environmental Biology of the National Science Foundation under award DEB-1256695
