April 1) -- An enormous crustacean that attached itself to a submarine scouring the depths of the Gulf of Mexico is eliciting shock, awe and a touch of skepticism among Web readers -- but scientists say the critter is just an impressive example of a supersized species.
Photos of the beast were posted on Reddit, under the title "By God, it's a monster!" by a user who said he worked for a deep-sea surveying company. His crew found the creature hooked onto the bottom of a remotely operated vehicle. He estimated that the behemoth -- which measures 2 1/2 feet long -- was creeping along at a depth of about 8,500 feet.
