Cheerleader Crab

This is a “pom-pom crab”—a newly discovered little critter that lives only near the Hawaiian Islands. It was found recently during a census round-up of the ocean there, according to National Geographic.

The article says the pom-poms are not actually part of the crab; they are anemones it uses as tools to rake up unfortunate little organisms on coral reefs for its dinner.

So it isn’t a cheerleader, although it looks like one. God has a good sense of humor.
