This summer I was diving beside a rock wall near some docks and I found this little creature under water. It looked like a spider/walking stick type of bug. It was really weird it was all legs with no real body and it could flip over and walk on either side. I have tried to look it up and can't find it. Does anyone know what it could be? I am just curious.

oh that might be an arrow crab, did you spot it in the Caribbean?

Sorry Carrie. We need more information. Was it salt water or fresh? What part of the world were you diving? How big/little was it? How many legs?

It was the coast of North Carolina. It had 8 legs like a spider. ???

Thanks for the help...it is probably a close relative to that little crab. It looked a lot like it except it didn't have a middle part at all. Just all legs. Maybe it was on a diet and had just lost some weight.:smiley36:
