    It is a particular type of beach crab that lives in a very specific coastal area of Japan. It is considered to be bad luck to kill these crabs because they are said to be the reincarnation of several hundred Samurai who were killed in battle several hundreds of years ago (e.g., they were on the losing side and this is their fate for all eternity for having lost). Regards, The Village Idiot

  2. It is a Cyclocosmia truncata. This a real spider, the images have not been doctored at all.

    It is not a Heikea japonica “Heike crab” as suggested above.

  3. There is something really horrible about that, it gives me the creeps.
