wtf is this? I caught this whilst crabbing in australia a few days ago. It had a wierd squinty face and would move really slow with a coral-like shell attached to it's back. The photo still creeps me out haha. Does anyone know what it is?

No but the local people should be able to identify it. If not, contact the Wildlife agency there (not sure what its called in Australia)

It does look like a crab that I do not recall the name of. If I had caught that I would gently poke it and try to see more features to better ID it.

wow thanks for the input guys! i didn't get a chance to ask the locals but after looking up images of the sponge crab, i have to admit that it's fairly spot on with its similarities - mostly because of the shady face and seedy eyes lol! thanks again, was bugging me for days!
