Hl female undergoing senescence.jpg

Nearly a month after laying her clutch of eggs, they are ready to hatch, but at what cost to mom. She has not eaten for a month and her skin is literally falling apart. Notice also also the bluish haze in the lens of her eye - a sure sign that senescence is well under way. Her eggs will hatch in a day or two and enter the plankton and she will be dead within a week.
