Since I'm studying a crab species for my PhD, why not share some crab art I've done? 🦀👉 The first seven illustrations were a commission by the South Australian NRM Board for a crab identification brochure, and essentially my first taste in professional #scienceillustration and #sciencecommunication. The last three images were all for fun.

Here's an interesting fact: have you ever wondered why cancers (the disease) have the same name as Cancer (the crab astrology sign)? In Greek mythology, there was a giant crab named Karkinos (now translated as Carcinus, which is the Genus of crabs I study). Karkinos was sent by Hera to distract Hercules while he battled the Lernaean Hydra. There's different accounts, but Hercules either crushed Karkinos or kicked it into the sky during the battle. Thankful for the crab's efforts, Hera placed Karkinos in the sky, where it became the constellation Cancer (which is the Latin word for crab). How does this connect with the disease? Well, the Greek physician, Hippocrates, used the terms "carcinos" and "carcinoma" to describe the crab-like shape of cancerous tumors. Celsus, a Roman physician, then translated the name to Latin (Cancer). It's also why cancer-causing substances are named "carcinogens." The more you know 🦀🌌💉

A freshwater crab (Potamon fluviatile) wait for something edible passing by outside of its burrow a few cm under the water of a stream in central Italy. These crabs don't return to the sea to spawn, but females retain their eggs inside a ventral space and they'll release young well formed mini-crabs, already able to grip to the rocks into the river current. #stream #crabs #crustacea #arthropods #underwater

This is a new morph isolated by captive isopoda that should be ready to distribute by spring. Parvus are a shy but beautiful species! I'm always amazed at the variety and colors in the colony. #venezillo #parvus #venezilloparvus #dalmatian #life #isopoda #captive #captiveisopoda #isopod #isopods #pillbugs #invertebrate #invert #bio #bioactive #morph #recessive #rough #crustacea #terrestrial #woodlice #animalia #euarthropoda #malacostraca #peracarida

"Double wave" black body and white, both stoneware fired five part hollow 'waveforms'. These are in my studio, see the bigger versions at #greatnorthartshow in Ripon Cathedral until the end of this week. I will be on-site in the morning 10:30 til 1pm if you want to come down and rock my world ;-) #wave #waveform #kinetic #oneofakind #ceramicsculpture #artcollector #interiordesign #aaf #raku #ericmossceramics #touchyfeely #tactile #architecture #articulated #ceramicsculpture #pebble #marine #beach #mussel #ceramicano #turtle #crab #crustacea #waveform #seedpod #squid #ceramicano

This is our very first Trivia Tuesday post! We hope to post something new about awesome marine and intertidal species every week, so keep an eye out.
The little guy featured today is a Fiddler Crab. The males usually have an oversized claw and a normal sized claw. Females have both claws which are the same size. At low tide on sand flats you'll usually see these males waving their big claws in the air as a defensive sign and the larger the claw the more dominant the male. When they fight they usually disarm their opponent's large claw. If this happens, the existing small claw will start to grow bigger and a new small claw will start to develop on the amputated side. #TriviaTuesday #FiddlerCrab #crab #crabs #coast #lowtide #sandflats #claw #regeneration #species #fiddlercrabsofinstagram #fiddlercrab #fiddlercrabs #Andamans #India #Chidiyatapu #wildlife #marine #coastal #intertidal #zoology #biology #science #sciencerocks #marinebiology #marine #crustaceans #decapod #crustacea

Hurrah, "the white turtle"! See how the turtle moves ( but in stills, as I've posted a video of a 'coral' one being articulated previously. ). Currently, I have available just a half dozen of these in various shades of white and green. They're destined for my stand at #artinclay #Farnham in November unless 'snapped up' beforehand;-) #oneofakind #ceramicsculpture #artcollector #interiordesign #aaf #raku #ericmossceramics #touchyfeely #tactile #architecture #articulated #ceramicsculpture #pebble #marine #beach #mussel #ceramicano #turtle #crab #crustacea #waveform #seedpod #squid #ceramicano #terrypratchett #theturtlemoves

Blast from the past : found this biro drawing in my old pottery night-school book showing first evidence of my 'Ceramicano ' assemblies concept way back in 2004 ( 2 years before I began selling pots ). It was about 6 years before I got the chance to begin making them. #oneofakind #ceramicsculpture #artcollector #interiordesign #aaf #raku #ericmossceramics #touchyfeely #tactile #architecture #articulated #ceramicsculpture #pebble #marine #beach #mussel #ceramicano #turtle #crab #crustacea #waveform #seedpod #squid #ceramicano
