From CNN:
PARIS, France (AP) -- Divers have discovered a new crustacean in the South Pacific that resembles a lobster and is covered with what looks like silky, blond fur, French researchers said Tuesday.

It's a hairy crab!

That's just plain cool. I, for one, welcome our new hairy lobster overlords.

Does it still turn red when you boil it?

Let me melt some butter and get a pot ready.

At least he doesn't have to blow dry every day. I guess the wet look is IN in the ocean.

I wonder if you get hairs in your teeth when you eat it, kinda like.... oh nevermind.

You can get rid of those with some salve from the doctor and a little comb that comes with it.

How does it resemble a lobster when it has no tail? Plus no tail= nothing to stuff stuff for baking so who really cares

I think the tail is tightly curled under it on the left side -- notice how the light reflects off that end, as if it's hitting a curved surface.

Thousands of Cajuns are rejoicing at the thought of a new mudbug to cook with.

I would rather have a hairy lobster on my piano than a crab on my organ.
Link Posted: 3/8/2006 12:39:10 PM EDT
there are billions more where that one came from. they get up to 300 feet in length. their claws can crush the hulls of nuclear subs. whales have been beaching themselvles for years just to get away from them.

now that they have been discovered they will come forth from the oceans depth to gobble up mankind. is part of the beggining of the end..

and the beast will rise from the sea....

Double that order. I'm in.

Ya see, kids, this is what happens when we lose or test nukes in the ocean.

(seriously, I understand that theres almost no light down there, but the odd jelly creatures in the Mariana's Trench have eyesight (even if it's not in the human-visible light spectrum), so how can a blind critter like this evolve?)

The fur reminds me of the Chinese Mitten Crab. I was fishing in a freshwater channel once, pretty damn far inland and when I checked my bait, one of these was tangled in my line. It was almost a foot across. It was an ugly crab with some kind of fur like stuff around its claws. I took it to a wildlife center, and they identified it as a mitten crab, an invasive species from China. Since then I have found one in a community lake with no connection to any rivers or streams (but near the SF bay). I also found one near a cooling pond at a factory. I kept 2 of them and fed them goldfish, but they eventually escaped in my yard and I never found them.

Ok, so why was it from AP Paris? It was discovered by american divers, on an american funded/ organized expedition.???

Achmed,
I think we're looking at a pic taken from above the lobster , notice the legs, so you may be right. In spite of that though I'm still not seeing a lot of potential look how small those claws are

Just saw some new pictures, and it looks like I'm wrong -- there's no tail curling underneath.
