iLabs: Crayfish molt: Part I – Our crayfish begins his molt!!

September 6, 2012

Our crayfish have been active participants in our lab activities and a few days ago one of them decided to molt….right in the front of the tank! We captured video of the process, in three parts. The biggest question during any molt, is will the creature survive? They are most at risk during this time, both from attack by a predator as well as simply not surviving the stresses of the molt itself.

So here is Part I of our Crayfish molt…..

Now the question: Will he survive?
Stay tuned for Part II and III to find out how it goes…..
