英文: What people like to talk about most is the love story of horseshoe crabs. Horseshoe crabs live on the sea floor and only climb to the shore when laying eggs. Summer is the breeding season of horseshoe crabs. At this time, we can often see the horseshoe crabs congregating in groups on the beach. The female horseshoe crabs carry the smaller male horseshoe crabs on their backs, inseparable like the mandarin ducks. So they have got a good name "submarine mandarin ducks".

What's more surprising is that horseshoe crabs have blue blood! The blood of most animals is red because it contains iron ions, which when combined with oxygen forms hemoglobin that makes the blood red. However, the blood of horseshoe crab contains copper ions. When copper ions combine with oxygen, hemocyanin is formed, which makes the blood blue. What's more, this blue blood solidifies when it comes into contact with bacteria. Taking advantage of the feature, people have already applied the blue blood in medicine to quickly detect bacterial infections in human tissues.

中文:人们最津津乐道的是关于鲎的爱情故事。鲎一般生活在海床,只有在产卵时才会爬到岸边。夏季是鲎的繁殖期,这时经常能看到鲎成群结队的聚集到沙滩上,雌鲎背上驮着比自己小的雄鲎在沙滩上蹒跚爬行,像鸳鸯一样形影不离,所以,人们给它们起了一个好听的名字“海底鸳鸯”。

更令人惊讶的是鲎拥有蓝色的血液!大多数动物的血液是红色的,因为血液中含有铁离子,当铁离子和氧结合后,就形成血红蛋白,使血液呈现出红色。而鲎的血液当中含有铜离子,当铜离子和氧结合后,便形成血蓝蛋白,昌平房产,使血液呈蓝色。更特别的是,这种蓝色的血液一接触到细菌,就会凝固。人们利用这一特性,将这种蓝色血液应用于医学当中,能快速地检测人体内部组织是否受到细菌感染。
