... Charming Maja crispata lesser spider crab.
Unlike other crabs, that may behave themselves quite belligerently, spider crab does not pinch, does not struggle to brake loose, but tucking up it's thin orange tweezers-pincers touchingly watches what is happening with it's stem eyes.
When loose, the crab tucks up all of it's legs and artfully imitates a shapeless lump of a seaweed being rolled across the seabed by the waves, until left alone in peace. Then it turns over and makes off bowing to the salvational shaggy carpet.
