Scientists have discovered a species of crab with a weird, cartoonishly large eyes, which is by the sea 95 million years ago.

The special, ultra-small creature called a Callichimaera perplexa – which is mind-boggling, beautiful, chimera does not seem to have much in common with today’s drag.

According to the authors, it could have been a lobster-like shell, a platform on stilts, which look like paddles, and a gigantic eye sticking out of its head.

“Callichimaera perplexa is so unique and strange that it can be thought of as the duck-billed platypus, from the tropic of the world,” said Yale paleontologist Javier Luque, the lead author of the study, in a published statement. “It points to how new forms are evolving, and, therefore, differing by the period of time.”

The crab’s body, it was about the size of a quarter coin). As a human being, and his eyes were as big as a football.

Luque told Live Science that, “I say, my beautiful nightmare, because it was so beautiful, and it’s frustrating for the investigators to figure this out.

“It’s very exciting that we have today, as ever, new branches on the tree of life from the distant past, especially in the regions such as the tropics, which, in spite of its hot spots of diversity it is today, a place where we know the least about their past, the diversity,” Luque said.

Heather Bracken-Grissom, an evolutionary biologist at Florida Internal University, told The Washington Post that the “bizarre ” find” would be to make scientists to reconsider how crabs have evolved and changed over the course of time.
