Mt porcelain crab seems to have 2 extra legs, which he uses like body-wipers

Any idea what this is ? Sorry difficult to take a decent shot.

when you have 5 pairs of legs, then perhaps you start learning different things for them to do:lol:

Warr, you're confusing me here, you are talking about his last pair of legs, right? The ones he uses to walk on and cling onto the anemone with?

No, no - that is what is so weird. He has 3 pairs of 'walking" legs, a pair of big pincers, a pair of filter feeders and then two weird "butt" legs that come out one at a time and "wipe his body.
