Carcinonemertes errans, Glycogen
Juvenile C. errans do not feed on particulate matter and yet they can survive, apparently unchanged, for several months before maturing into the adult stage which feeds on the eggs of Cancer magister. The significance of glycogen as an energy source for maintenance of the juvenile form was investigated.
