In a Tug Boat Cabin

Jade sent me some photos of the inhabitants of his aquariums, and when I saw these of his arrow crab, I had a flashback...

...cue harp music...

I was scuba diving down in the Sea of Cortes with a buddy of mine, and we were exploring a wreck of an erstwhile tug boat. We got down inside the cabin, and much to my horror, every corner and window sill was infested by spidery crabs just like this one, just as if the place were infested with daddy-long-legs. My arachnophobia kicked in, which was amplified by the fact that I was 50 feet underwater, wearing a constrictive wet suit, and inside a rusty chunk of metal.

It seems that spiders have forged an alliance with their crustacean cousins to haunt me wherever I go.

Thanks for helping me relive my nightmare, Jade.

Had I seen that, my wet suit would have been wet...from the inside....

BLECH!

My pleasure. Always happy to help with that ;)

Is it just me or do those look like the spiders in the Harry Potter movie?

Fairly sure they are "Sea Spiders" which are indeed underwater spiders.
