Tuesday Crustie: Geotagged

If you look closely, you can figure out what city this little guy is from.

When I tweeted this picture on the Real Scientists, someone claimed this has “the wrong number of legs.” Maybe. Maybe this little guys lost some in a fight or an accident, and is regenerating them. Or maybe this is actually a squat lobster, which usually tuck the last pair of legs (which are tiny and not used for walking) under their tail.

From my recent excursion to the American Society for Parasitologists meeting.
