[Blogger really hates this image: it keeps disappearing as censor-bots freak over the title then get overridden.
I'm going to tint it a non-flesh color and re-post below - just as an experiment.]


"Man with blue pubic lice"
[Let's see if the censor-bots react the same way to an image without flesh-tones.]


Japanese spider crabs can grow to 13 feet across and can weigh 40lbs.

  2. Such a fascinating creature. That's creepy and delicious, but inferior in both respects to the unholy 'coconut crab'.
