ID: Porcelain crab
Like the name, this unique beauty seems to have a bizarre and painful defensive mechanism, when threatened or approached by a predator, these beauties shed off their limbs. But unlike the name suggests, these seem to be false crabs and are rather much closer to a lobster than an actual crab, though their body structure, very significantly, resembles a crab.This tiny beauty seemed to be feeding on the rock on which it was found.
