    Hi.

    I saw something moving last night , unfortunatly the camera wasn't close enough..

    I have a small (size of a 10c , if not smaller) neon green crab! I had a look on the net, and the only crab close enough - though not nearly as green as this one is the emerald crab.

    Has anyone ever seen something like this - I will try to get a pic, but it seems as if he/she is only out during night time

    Any possible ID's ? I know its difficult without a photo

    This is the closest I can find - The Emerald Crab, but this little guy was 10 times as bright.

    Possibly a Emerald Crab then?
