Crystal and her Water Beetles

Emily Graslie, Chief Curiosity Correspondent, Brain Scoop

Want to travel the world? Become a biologist! Crystal Maier - Collections Manager of Insects at The Field Museum - spent a month in New Zealand, going from stream to stream in search of hobbits. And by hobbits I mean beetles that spend their entire lives underwater. How?! Why?! We get answers.

Thanks to Crystal for taking the time to talk with us about her research!
