Remember the Hoff Crab? You bet your bippy you do. You can thank Nicolai Roterman for that. Nicolai, a hydrothermal vent biologist and a member of the expedition that found this hairy crab, coined the name Hoff Crab while still on board.
This painting was the inspiration for a Nicolai’s recent tattoo.
We at DSN (and Southern Fried Science) gladly welcome Nicolai into our nerdy, tattooed, awesome, and salty ranks. You can follow Nicolai on twitter at @Elpipster
