Anyone know where to obtain a specimen, am looking to add one to my collection.
Not a live one, of course.

I remember someone here suggesting talking to shrimpers along the coast that bring up all kinds of things ...other than shrimp. I think a zoo was keeping them in a temp controlled aquarium somewhere.

yeah...that would be cool,i would give an arm and a leg for one of those guys!
wouldnt want to see one die..but if it did i would love to have one.

i bet they are difficult to maintain, even in a zoo aquarium, because they are such deep sea dwellers.
