    Sorry, my ex distroyed the camera for the housing. So something else to replace over the next few years.

    Was tempted for comedy value to get a shot from a supermarket website of a Prawn ring....

    Oh crap that's not good Hopefully all will be good soon.

    I was tempted to put in a pic of a man sized shrimp statue from a fish market, didn't hit the brief though!

    Define crab and shrimp. Things are fairly confused cladistically in crustacea. I am not an expert but could it be a juvenile mantis shrimp??
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    Crabs are decapod crustaceans of the infraorder Brachyura, which typically have a very short projecting "tail", usually hidden entirely under the thorax. They live in all the world's oceans, in fresh water, and on land, are generally covered with a thick exoskeleton and have a single pair of pincers

    The term shrimp is used to refer to some decapod crustaceans, although the exact animals covered can vary. Used broadly, shrimp may cover any of the groups with elongated bodies and a primarily swimming mode of locomotion – most commonly Caridea and Dendrobranchiata

    The little animal in the Flikr picture above (by ATA28) has a crab shaped body with the tail folded underneath and a single pair of large claws. Also it is a crab. A juvenile mantis shrimp looks like a small mantis shrimp. if you're referring to the picture (by Frogphone) above the one I'm talking about, that's a caprellid, or skeleton shrimp, so does count.

    Shrimps and prawns
    Suborder Macrura (previously applied to all the long-tailed taxa, shrimps and lobsters)
