Pic of the Week - Cyclocoeloma tuberculata

This is an absolutely crazy pic of a decorator crab (Cyclocoeloma tuberculata.) The carapace of these critters is densely packed with tubercles, allowing assorted stuff to grow on their backs. These have been seen packing around everything from soft corals to small anemones. Nice shot Adam!
