This is pretty damn weird looking.
Looks like a plant or tree, but it walks like a crab.
I am really hoping this isn’t a Triffid
I think this comment from the comments section on the link ID’d it…
“It’s a Moron crab ..named after the idiots poking it!”
Yeah, that would identify it, if there were such a thing as a Moron Crab. Which there isn’t.
It looks like it could be a Sea Dragon. And you’re right, they do look more like plants. I’m assuming its their cover from predators.
What a cool looking creature!
“Make it move!” Ungh. Humans.
It’s actually a decorator crab
Wonder why the guy has a bloody knife poking at it?
@chyna They were fishing.
I moron crab is apt.
they can operate a camera, but odds on that “make it move” advanced to “kill it!”.
Cool creature, though. I probably would have thrown it back – surely if they could be raised as pets there would be on in every pet shop.
Decorator Crab looks right. Thanks.
Triffids are probably a lot bigger.
