Apparently they're quite good to eat! From wikipedia: "...in Northern Taiwan and other areas, they are not uncommon at seaside restaurants, served boiled and bisected with a clean lateral slice. The white meat, not dissimilar to crab or lobster in texture, is then easily removed." Serve with melted butter and a nice chilled V-8???
Yipes, i'd even be afraid to step on it, more crunch than squish i'd imagineat least it wasnt one of thesehttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/ae/Opabinia_BW.jpg/737px-Opabinia_BW.jpgif you're going to have prehistoric cephalopods in your kitchen Opabinia is the last one i'd like to see
I saw that earlier today and nearly threw up. Ick, ick, ick.
Are those precambrian trilobytes?
Strangely enough, I'd be thrilled to see those in my kitchen.shauna
What arfe they? No, uh---where are they? Makes me feel queasy just thinking about anything buggy that is that big! Yuck!
oh my god oh my god oh my god...what ARE they?! Bugs with many legs make me scream like a five year old if they are within spitting distance of me. If I saw these in my kitchen, I don't know if I'd pee myself or just freeze in panic. Maybe both.
I thought they were trilobites, but those are extinct. These are giant isopods, and are related to shrimp, and basically are giant, seagoing woodlice (you know, the "roly poly bugs" that curl up into a ball when you poke them).Seriously. These skeeve me out to no end.
That would go well with the Bunny in the pot- throw in some taters, onions and carrots and plat a litlle Staiway to Heaven -(LOL) and then call me for supper!PS: It may take more than Kwell or Nix to get rid of those guys!!!J
ERP:HAHAHA! GG: Dude, my blood ran cold...once when I was a kid I went to step on a big ass cockaroach and it flew up and hit me in the arm....*shudders*
Reminds me of one night in Thailand...Hmmm... maybe a post on my own blog for that.
Move out? Not me!They look edible. I'll cook them and eat them with some fava beans (tssssh).LOL
With ginger and scallion, please!
That's so unfair, they're just sea kittens.
