"In Berry"

Ma Crab was not very cooperative. "But I'm fat!" she says. "And why are you shining lights at my babies?" But she had to come out into the open sometime. Here she is*:

And then she scuttled off to bury herself in the sand.

*Note; on my computer, at least, there is no sound with this set to 360p. Set it to 480p for sound. (Just calm music for a mother-in-waiting.)

Thank you so much for this video. I had no idea crabs held their babies like this, for such a long time. I was fascinated!

I will never look at a crab quite the same way again! Thanks again, I really enjoyed this.

I was fascinated by this video. I had no idea that crabs care for their eggs for such a long time. What a wonderful creature!

I noticed that YouTube is having some sound problems. Right now, the video only has sound after you set it to 480p.

Did you three get sound? It's just music, but still, I think it adds depth.

I didn't hear sound, Susannah...but Google's been acting strange today and yesterday. It was still a great video!!

Thanks, Marion. I sent in a bug notification to YouTube, and someone else was on the forum asking about the lack of sound. So it's their problem, and I'm sure they'll fix it as fast as they can.
