Hello, Curacha!

Have you seen a Curacha?   I think it's been almost 10 years since I've encountered these crabs!  I was in Zamboanga city at that time too so it was quite a shock to see these in the grocery :)

The Curacha (or spanner crab in English) is a strange looking crab.

Quite pricey too at P549/$12.50 a kilo!  Too bad I didn't get to take more detailed shots but here are some links to check if you're interested in reading more about this odd (but yummy! hehe) crab.
