Cape Cod Sealife

A few pictures from a course I took at the Mass. Audubon Society's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary this past week. Excellent instruction by Sanctuary Director Bob Prescott, guest instructors Don Lewis and Sue Wieber Nourse, and naturalist Dennis Murley. Top to bottom: Measuring and tagging horseshoe crabs; Hemigrapsus sanguineus (Asian shore crab); Dark fingered (or dark tip) mud crabs; Calico crab; 10x magnification of calico crab leg shortly after larval stage; Squid egg sacks washed up on beach; Squid eggs at 10x magnification (note the eyes!); Diamondback terrapin.
