Under the Sea part 2

Not to be outdone by the Monster Factory's resident underwater creations an American team of marine biologists have discovered a new species of marine creature. It's called the 'Kiwa hirsuta' and it looks like a furry lobster. Apparently it is distinct enough from other species that it warrants a new taxonomic family and a new genus.

The Monster Factory particularly likes it more commonly used name: the Yeti crab.
