Introducing… Bathynomus giganteus (yes, you can eat it)

One thought on “Introducing… Bathynomus giganteus (yes, you can eat it)”

  1. Funny that so many people’s first inclination on seeing a new animal is to ask “can we eat it?” As an undergrad we had to examine one of these in our invert lab and of course, the first question was “How do they taste?”

    FWIW, Research cruises in the Gulf of Mexico pull these up from time to time and bored scientists have been known to eat them as well.
