I’ve featured many colour variants of fished crustaceans on Tuesday Crustie, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one quite like this. It’s quite spectacular. It’s now on display in a seafood shop, where, given the age of big crabs, it might live for many years.
Hat tip to Miss Mola Mola and Judith Price!
