    looks very similar to a Spanish Slipper Lobster I saw (and recorded) on the Harbour Village Reefcam a few weeks back...

    Interesting. Too bad this little guy didn't get a chance to grow up. This was taken down in Belnem on May 27th.

    How big is that thing? Could be a small slipper lobster. Another possibility is a mole crab, but they are usually on sandy beaches.

    It was only a couple of inches long not counting the long antennae looking thing. I found a picture of a mole crab that looks very similar. There were a couple of sandy beaches close by; The one at Bellevue apartments, and the one by Henny Huisman's old house next door to the former Casa del Sol.
