Anemone Hermit Crab Pair, On Maerl

Private lives beneath the waves

Marine biologist and underwater photographer Paul Naylor (link) opened the season of outreach activities at the Octopus Centre. Paul revealed the intricate and diverse lifestyles of local marine animals; hard-working wrasse, cunning butterfish, battling limpets and self-decorating crabs. We have his book “Great British Marine Animals” for sale at the Octopus Centre shop and Teresa Naylor’s “Benny the Blenny” which is an all-time favourite for the youngest. Have a peep at Benny’s blog here.
