Earlier this week, I entertained guests from the Atlantic Ocean at my kitchen table. These juvenile hermit crabs scuttled like glittering gems in a shallow glass bowl. I admired their pale jointed legs and ebony compound eyes that peered from miniature shells. Like other marine crustaceans, hermit crabs begin life as planktonic larvae wandering the water column. After multiple molts, they settle into a more benthic lifestyle in which they require the protection of a cast-off gastropod shell. Whether these young crabs repurposed empty shells, dragged fellow hermit crabs from their abodes, or murdered the molluscan occupants and purloined the shells, I’ll never know. Crabs will be crabby. I was just grateful to make their acquaintance. #clibanariusvittatus #sargassumweed #olloclip10xmacro

Really missing the ocean lately, can't wait until the next time I'm exploring underneath a giant floating carpet of #sargassumweed. #looekey #reef #floridakeys #ocean #sea #yellowtailsnapper #adventure #explore #snorkel #scuba #dive

@natgeo Photo by @DavidDoubilet. A sea turtle hatchling hides from predators in a dense floating canopy of sargassum algae near Cancun Mexico. Sargassum plays a critical role in sea turtle hatchling survival. Sea turtles hatch and swiftly head for the open sea running a gauntlet of hungry land and then sea creatures until the lucky ones find cover and protection in the sargassum weed. These floating forests maybe clump, table or football field sized and some patches stretch for miles like a vast ceiling on the sea but even the smallest is critical nursery habitat for immature and vulnerable sea life that would be quickly devoured in the open blue. // Photographed on @natgeo assignment with @jenniferhayesig for upcoming story on Sargassum:Nurseries in the Sea. // #ocean #seaturtle #baby #sargassumweed #cancun #survival #life #beauty #mexico #moreocean // To see a baby sea turtle searching the sea for a safe nursery follow @daviddoubilet

Photo by @DavidDoubilet. A sea turtle hatchling hides from predators in a dense floating canopy of sargassum algae near Cancun Mexico. Sargassum weed is an algae that forms a floating golden forest on the sea. The rafts maybe small (table sized) or stretch for miles like a vast ceiling on the sea but all are critical nursery habitats for immature and vulnerable sea life that would be quickly devoured in the open blue. // Photographed on @natgeo assignment for upcoming story on Sargassum Golden Rainforest in the Sea. // #ocean #seaturtle #baby #sargassumweed #mexico for #moreocean follow @daviddoubilet

Digging through the #sargassumweed, this #scrawledfilefish has an unusual, upturned mouth. Maybe it's a mutation, maybe it's a scar from an old injury, or maybe its evolution giving the creature a more suitable jaw for eating foods floating on the surface. Whatever the reason, still a pretty cool sight! #adventure #explore #looekey #reef #snorkel #filefish #unusual

An usual find in the Lynnhaven River is this clump of sargassum weed (sargassum muticum) which was carried inshore by weeks of easterly winds punctuated by hurricane Matthew. This seaweed is actually a macroalgae that can be found around inshore tropical reefs further south but is totally pelagic off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina. Notice the berry-like extensions which are neither seeds or fruit but rather small air bladders that help sargassum to float. A huge raft of this species makes up the aptly named Sargasso Sea in the Atlantic Ocean and harbors a universe of life floating in an otherwise empty expanse of ocean. Sargassum is typically a brilliant yellow throughout like the leaves in the upper left here but quickly browns when removed from the water.

Tons of sargassum weed being pushed in the river today, along with tons of leatherbacks and this tripletail. #gopro #hero3 #tripletail #sargassumweed
