Well, based on its wikipedia entry, it's a giant crab. Which makes it tasty when boiled.

Well, yeah, but it's lovably ugly.

And the basis for the Zerg Overlords in starcraft:)

good lord! It looks like something from another planet!

Eh, just deep sea. Which is close enough to another planet in some cases. (In case you can't tell, I loved Zoology:))

Oh jesus christ I bet it's hiding under my bed or in the closet! Help!

Well, it's not as scary as one of those pictures they take of dust mites. Close ups of insects bug me.

I love seafood, especially lobster although it's extremely expensive, and sad to say this critter is uglier than sin (it is kinda cute in a weird way) it's a lot better then this

That thing is the stuff nightmares are made of. I love crabs and lobster, especially with butter, but that guy is getting nowhere near me! :O

Well, according to the wiki entry, that little shellfish was the basis for the Zerg Overlords in Starcraft. So I'd eat the damn thing if only for revenge for all the times I got zerg rushed.

Mmm... bet he's yummy though. WOnder if his shell turns bright red when I cook him.

I'd say probably. Then again, it's been a while since I boiled a crustacean.
