    Default Tiny brittle beauty

    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.

    EXIF:
    Canon 550D
    Canon 100mm macro + Raynox DCR 250
    F/18
    Shutterspeed 1/125
    ISO 800
    Handheld, External flash fired

    location: Carter Road, Bandra

    P.S.: The information about the Porcelain crab was shared by the knowledgeable marine life experts/enthusiasts.
