Please don’t do this to your children, and don’t do it to your lobster either. It’s just not right and it’s not funny.

Giant Isopod Stomach Contents

The other day, I was examined the contents of the digestive tract of Giant isopod who died.

in individuals captured after the date has not passed, it does not eat food in the aquarium.

Stomach contents, you believed that you were eating in the food or the seabed in the trap at the time of capture.

Previously, there was a thing that was introduce another individual of the contents, inside also this individual digestive tract had been filled with undigested material.

Color is black, different impression until now.

Weight of stomach contents is 128.5g, because body weight was about 1000g, you pretty now that it was at once ate a large amount of food for the body weight.

In texture you whether referred to as a “massive”, “soggy” This time, such as the internal organs of something if from the color feel of the … squid?

Smell is stronger, but because it was unexpectedly pond likely feel it when I smell, I tried to make sure the taste is a little lick.

Not surprisingly unpleasant, here also certainly (such as, for example, Ayu visceral salted “Uruka”) taste like salted fish visceral.

Even I feel taste.

When you leave for a while and left at room temperature (22 ℃), so went more and more soluble in muddy, I felt that you are self-digestion. Do Will contains a large amount of enzyme.

After that, I was a survey of solid was strained with a net, but this time in as long as it was confirmed by eye scales of fish are not included at all, there was still many just squid beak.

Most but is small enough width 7mm, even things like pieces of a large squid beak is in.

This individual seems to have apparently eat squid.

These pups live in the deep, scrounging around in the darkness for rotted detritus, and occasionally they are captured on trawling lines. The one in the picture is about 2-1/2 feet long  and was found clinging to a submarine returning from an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. They’re related to common pillbugs, wood lice and lawn shrimp. Wikipiddlia has this:

“In northern Taiwan and other areas, they are common at seaside restaurants, served boiled and bisected with a clean lateral slice. The white meat, similar to crab or lobster in texture, is then easily removed.”

I’d eat it.
