Fruits of the Sea

Startling Strawberry Crab Discovered
A marine biologist has discovered a startling new crab species that resembles a large strawberry.
The unusual crustacean was found off the coast of southern Taiwan. It has a dramatic bright red shell covered with small white bumps.
Crabs are omnivores feeding primarily on algae. There are more than 5,000 known species in the world.
