Caption: An X-ray of the giant isopod Bathynomus giganteus. Giant isopods are crustaceans related to the shrimp and crabs in the genus Bathynomus. Maximum size for this species is between 19 and 37 cm. Giant isopods are a good example of deep-sea gigantism. They are related to terrestrial isopods like the woodlice or pill bug. Giant isopods are important scavengers in the deep-sea benthic environment.
