The crab with a forest on its back by SlateGray The crab with a forest on its back by SlateGray
Another Damariscotta horseshoe crab. This rather colorful fellow was meandering along the water's edge, sporting a forest of algae and sea lettuce on its opisthosoma. :)

Oh, you know... there are all these mythologies with turtles or tortoises so huge that actual forests made of trees grow on their backs, there seem to be a few religions out there where the whole world is a particularly enormous turtle, the speculative evolution community seems to like designing immense algae-covered sea turtles with whole ecosystems living on them, Terry Pratchett... your post made me picture an island-sized horseshoe crab with trees growing on it, or a crab with an entire world on its back.

The joke might have been funnier inside my head.
