New Crab Discovered, Looks Like a Strawberry

Strawberrycrab

Taiwanese biologists have discovered a new crab species:

"With a bright red shell covered with small white spots, the crab
resembles a large strawberry. Scientists at the University say that the
newly discovered species is similar to the previously discovered Neoliomera pubescens,
which is native to the waters near Hawaii, Polynesia and Mauritius–but
has a broader (1 inch), clam-shaped shell that makes it a distinct new
species."

    gay crab…like gay fish…at least nature is now recognizing…

    just kidding…

    on the other hand though, it’s too adorable to eat. Hope we don’t make them endangered too, we suck at that.
