Crab Nebula

Here is a story about something you have never seen before (I’m quite sure about that, because until a few days ago, nobody had) – a lobster, covered with “silky white fur”, that dwells near hydrothermal vents in the abyssal depths of the sea.

I’m not usually one to poke fun at decapods, but this fellow kind of looks like he should have a ruffled shirt and a pair of maracas. And I’d like to know what that “fur” is made of; as I recall it is only mammals that are supposed to grow hair.
