  IMAGES: Krill Stuff

This critter is the classic antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, the 55- millimeter-long copepod that whales trek south from the tropics to feast on. At this krill site,* you can zoom in on details such as the delicately ribbed plankton filter and compound eyes of krill and another specimen, a species of amphipod. The shrimplike creatures were photographed aboard an ice-breaking research vessel journeying through the Southern Ocean.

To see more antarctic sea life, check out this field guidedag describing a whole menagerie of cold-loving animals and plants, from sponges to jellyfish to diatoms. Also don't miss a professional photographer's amazing shots of the eerie, blue-green world below the frozen sea surface.

There was apparently a communication error, krill is of course not a copepod, only related to these crustaceans.
