GIANT ISOPOD © wood engraving (ed. 36) image: 6.5 x 5.5 in. $100.00 (go to "Hi There" for purchase information)
Giant Isopods are related to shrimps and crabs and live in the deep waters of the Atlantic ocean. They can be as large as 15 inches long and weigh over 3.5 pounds. The Giant Isopod is so much larger than other Isopods because it lives in the deepest portions of the ocean. They are scavengers and feed mostly on dead whales, and fish that have sunk to the bottom and they are also predators of slow-moving prey.
