What are these?

Postby NeuronSauce » Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:19 am

As far as I can tell, this hasn't been shopped, but I could be very wrong.

If I'm right and this is a legit photo, what exactly are these?!

Definitely a Crustacean. My guess would be a Giant Isopod (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathynomus_giganteus), only a guess but they seem to match the size and shape.
