    Just wanted to show you our seaspider - we collected them (4) in the tidal pools on the coast North of East Londen after spring low. There is two red one's, the other is hairy and the other pinkish. We spotted this one this morning, thought they didnt make it. They are about 1 cm - fortunately the fish dont look at them with hungry eyes...

    Very interesting - it is very spider like indeed with the 8 legs - perhaps a member of the pycnogonids? Did not think they were Indian ocean dwellers....

    Can you try get a clearer shot?
