Mysterious Creatures


Sand Museum9528

I have been unable to find out exactly whet these creatures are. They can be found scuttling about around harbors and the like and seem to live in the intertidal zone.

  2. They look like isopods to me. Isopods are an order of crustaceans, and there are thousands of species. No idea what species they are.

  3. They look a bit like silverfish, who like to nest between pages of old books. But a bit different also! Silverfish are flatter.

  4. Masa nailed it. They are funamushi, a type of isopod, and they live just above the high tide line.....
