'The Egg' - Jameos del Agua, Lanzarote, Spain

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In the volcanic tunnel lies a natural lake of extraordinarily clear waters that houses over a dozen endemic species of great scientific interest, including the famous blind albino crabs (Munidopsis polymorpha) that dot the rocky floor of the lake. The darkness within the grotto causes the lack of pigmentation of this rare specimen unique in the world, whitish in colour and barely one centimetre long. They are known also as "jameitos" and are the symbol of the Jameos del Agua.
