It's not the same as my squat...maybe a different kind though. The claws on this one are much larger.

Yep a squat. He looks just like
mine. Cool inverts. He disappears then reappeared some where else.

I'm with Jim, the claws look way too big to be a Crinoid squat lobster, maybe it's a different type of squat. I have only seen crinoids in aquariums though, they all had this body shape.

Matbe its just the angle of the picture but the markings and all look just like mine. I see what you guys are saying but I still think squat lobster. Maybe it is just a big clawed one?

The longer bent arms before its claws makes me think it might be some type of squat. Does anyone know of any other kinds of squat lobster?

could be a male if it has larger front claws. this little guy more resembles a coral banded shrimp with all the claws and arms. this one has a tail too just bent down at the very end where the "feather" ends are.
