Photo: Local rhino caught on film

Posted: Wednesday, January 12, 2005

The pictured beast was photographed during a dive New Year's Day at the Ann Coleman Road dive site, 136 feet beneath the waves, by Tani Church Bell. It is the infrequently seen (because not a lot of people spend time 136 feet beneath the waves) Rhinolithodes wosnessenskii -- popularly known as the rhinoceros crab. The animal is very hard to distinguish from all the encrusting organisms found in its natural habitat.
