More albino creature..Large and white “red” king crab found in Hokkaido
On 10/10/2012, white “red” king crab (Paralithodes camtschaticus) was found in Wakkanai city Hokkaido.
Except for the top of claws and a part of the shell, it’s completely white. The shell is 25cm long, 2kg weight, bigger than usual.
Usually it’s red purple. It is presumed to be mutation.
Noshappu aquarium to take care of the crab comments, they have had purple or blue ones before but haven’t seen a white one.
Encore de l’albinos : Un gros crabe royal du Kamtchatka tout blanc pêché à Hokkaido
Le 10 octobre 2012, un crabe royal du Kamtchatka, Paralithodes camtschaticus, a été observé à Wakkanai sur l’île d’Hokkaido.
A part le bout de ses griffes et certaines portions de sa carapace, il est complètement blanc. Sa carapace fait 25 cm de long, il pèse 2 kg, plus que la normale.
Normalement il est de couleur rouge-violet. On suppose que c’est une mutation.
L’aquarium de Noshappu qui va soigner ce crabe précise qu’ils en ont eu des violets et des bleus avant mais qu’ils n’en ont jamais vu un blanc.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
