    Interesting movie, Nick.

    How long did this process take?

    Here is a short movie of an U. gibba trap resetting itself. You can see the trapped air bubble move as well as the trap door reset. This short movie represents one hour.

    I soooooo love the gibba trap resetting!!! Seams like it needed more time on it though. Did you then trigger the trap after it reset?

    Here are two shots of the same trap. This is the trap from the above quicktime movie. The photos were taken at different times. The first photo was taken before the trap was triggered and the air bubble sucked in. The second photo shows the air bubble. You can see the trap door in the set and triggered possitions in the two photos.


    This photo shows the trap in the ready stage. The trap door has not been triggered and can be seen as the inside darkend arc at the mouth.


    Here you can see the air bubble that was sucked in when the trap was triggered. Notice that the dark inside arc from the first photo is now gone?

    These are from different angles. However, I do believe they show that the trap was in the ready stage (first image) and that it has been triggered (second image).
