First Pictures of Lepidurus arcticus

First pictures of the rare species of Triops – Lepidurus arcticus have been revealed. This amazing Triops hatches out at summer time in Greenland and the Svalbard islands where the temperature of their lakes and pools drops to 6C (42F) or lower! See the species page for a first look!

My many thanks to biologists Tomas Willems and Hans van Loy from Belgium.
