Strawberry Crab

A new crab has been discovered off Taiwan's coast. This creature may be pink enough to be worthy of my daughters' adoration, it may look like a scratch-and-sniff toy, but look at that mug. Its carapace may be only an inch across, but it looks mean. I'd have a chip on my shoulder too. Tiny, pink crustaceans have a hard time getting any respect.

How neat! I love how there are still new animals that have yet to be discovered. I think I would love to have this in an aquarium.

That is adorable! But I can't help to wonder about what it tastes like :p
It made me remember that I came across a spider once that looked a lot like a strawberry that isn't all the way ripe yet.
I posted a picture of it if you want to check it out.
