Rumors of an alien creature killed in Chelyabinsk Russia spread all over the news. It was no alien but a horseshoe crab, a prehistoric living fossil. This strange animal is next on the 50 strangest animal series.
The horseshoe crab, sometimes called the sea spider, is a marine arthropod that lives in muddy waters near the shallow beaches in the ocean. Looking just like something out of an alien movie, this crab is often mistaken for something from another world as pictures of this animal all over the internet are labeled with alien tags.
