It’s been quite the afternoon here at Balloon-Juice! I’m just going to squeeze a respite thread into the middle of all the other stuff that’s going on; sorry for the bigfoot-ish result. No primary politics, and if you have to hate on a generation, make it the Lost Generation or earlier.
To get us started, here is an awesome crab.
Boxer crabs — also known as pom-pom crabs 🦀— have a cool symbiotic relationship with sea anemones. The tiny crabs hold them in their claws for self-defense & the anemones benefit from food scraps. The crabs have also been seen halving the anemones, essentially cloning them. pic.twitter.com/mGxdTWqIF8

For more on the pom-pom crab (a name which keeps making me think of the Tom-Tom Club), check out this National Geographic article.
What about you folks, seen any good animals lately? I get to see a good one every day…
Enjoy your respite! Serenity now!
