Sunday Safari - An Army of Claws

Chicken Billy, King Crab

Last night Seba and I watched the spectacular Oceans documentary by French directors 
Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud. The otherwordly beauty of aquatic life forms is so inspirig!
One of the most awesome sequences of the movie was the encounter between 
two immense and heavily armoured crab battalions; it reminded me of the
incredible battle scenes of the Lord of the RIngs...
Animalarium's army is small but larger than life!
