Direct response of the crab Carcinus to the movement of the sun
1. The eyes of the crab follow the movement of the sun if stationary landmarks, which would arrest the eye movement, are obscured. 2. Therefore, even if the eyes do not move when the crab is in a normal environment, the sun's movement is certainly seen by the crab. 3.
