A bizarre-looking giant crustacean has been found after it latched onto a submarine deep underwater and was dragged to the surface, according to reports.

Images of the 75cm creature — which has been identified as an exceptionally large isopod — have caused a stir online after they were posted on the social media website Reddit.

A user of the website claimed to have received the images from a contractor who worked with him at a sub-sea survey company.

NOTE: if you have a marine reef aquarium, than you're very familiar with isopods though, they're very small...only a few millimeters long. They are a great source of protein for marine fish and other creatures, including those damn Mantis Shrimp...Lon

Truly weird like a giant bug. I wonder what else is down there.

Yeah, almost looks like a crab / lobster hybrid.

Here is another link, from yahoo, with pictures in the article:

Reminds me of that critter they found in Russia.... I'll see if I can find that
