Picture Parade: Crazy Crabs

Welcome to the wonderfully wacky world of crabs!  Yesterday I described the cute little strawberry crab, but there are a number of equally odd and unusual species of this decapod crustacean out there.  Just feast your eyes on these photos:

This peppermint-striped beauty was photographed in Malaysia by The Internet Walker

The Japanese spider crab is the biggest arthropod on earth!
