    This is a video of a hermit crab who's upgraded from a shell to a giant LEGO brick. Is a LEGO brick better than a shell? I doubt it. Does a hermit crab with a LEGO for a shell get laid more than one without? I doubt it. At least not unless he finds a lady crab to move in r... / Continue →

    This is a video taken off the coast of Australia of a spider crab colony migrating in a giant pyramid (technically just a big lump) formation to better defend themselves against predators. If I was one of those crabs I would want to be the one in the very bottom middle. And I ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a cuttlefish using an awesome laser lightshow (technically not lasers or lights, but colorful cells expanding and contracting) to stun a crab so it can eat it. I love crabs. Thankfully, I don't have to stun them to eat them, just wait till it's my birthday ... / Continue →

    This is a video from BBC's Life Story (narrated by David Attenborough, so you already know it's the tits) of a group of hermit crabs off the coast of Belize that form a line from biggest to smallest to quickly exchange shells whenever a new, larger shell washes ashore. It was ... / Continue →

    These are several videos capturing the annual migration of millions and millions of tiny red crabs across Christmas Island, near Indonesia. Once a year in October/November the entire population migrates from the forests to the coast to bang each other on the beach and make bab... / Continue →

    Note: I moved this post up from last year for relevance, originally posted December 2013. This is the Cthulhu inspired Christmas dinner made by Texan Rusty Eulberg and his wife. It consists of a bacon layered turkey (although way more bacon definitely wouldn't hurt anything... / Continue →

    This is a photo from David Littschwager of seawater magnified 25x (showing all the crab larvae and marine worms that are invisible to the naked eye). Just like the title says. So if you thought this post was going to be about superheroes, you are a terrible at interpreting ti... / Continue →

    King crabs: they're delicious. And this lavender one was recently spotted in a shipment to Japan from Russia. Why is it lavender? Is it even lavender? Personally, I think it's more of a cornflower blue, but that's just me and I'm willing to argue about anything. How many l... / Continue →

    These are the $75 conch shell iPhone speaker amplifiers sold by WAAM Industries. You've got to admit, that's a pretty clever idea. Of course if you don't have $75 you could probably make your own after a trip to a beach gift shop to pick up a conch shell. Just get me a pet h... / Continue →

    This is a newly discovered species of Yeti (NOT Batman) crab. It's similar to the other hairy-armed Yeti crabs except this one grows edible bacteria on its arms by methodically waving them around in front of deep sea methane vents. And speaking of deep sea methane vents: blue... / Continue →

    You're not fooling anybody! Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to make it your desktop background. In other 'animals that look like things' news, this is a crab casting a shadow that looks uncannily like the caped crusader (Batman, not the kid that runs around your ne... / Continue →

    Note: Video of the crab-vending action after the jump. China, best known for not being on the exact opposite side of the globe as California (you could have told me before I dug the hole!), now has live-crab vending machines. Because if there's one thing I'm hungry for in a h... / Continue →

    This is a video of a rice cooker that sits 1256 meters (~3/4 mile) below sea level off the coast of British Columbia (you thought we wouldn't find out, didn't you, littering Chinese restaurant?!). As you can see, a crab stands guard on top. But what's inside? Treasure? Davy... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because I swore for a second it was an alien hatching so I beat my monitor with a beer bottle. Now I'm on my roommate's computer. Remember the giant spider crabs of Japan? Well this is a video of one molting. For those of you that don't know wh... / Continue →

    I have no idea if this is real or not although I suspect not, but I've gotten the tip so many times I figured I'd go ahead and post it, effectively cutting the number of times I get it in the future nearly in half. Anyway, some website is selling pubic lice you can order onlin... / Continue →
