Question ID this?

It's a crab obviously ... a deceased crab. But what the hell is that sticking out of its arse?!

Pic quality not great but it's a video snapshot from a mobile!

cheers

Sweet Zombie Jesus ! I dare say that looks to be a missing piece of the Urn of Eryines of ancient Sumeria! Whatever you do don't hold it up to your ear, the screams of a thousand boiled children will haunt you until you lose your mind. I recommend hurling it right back into the sea from whence you found it before all is lost

So, when you die the flaps open? Doesn't sound very dignified to me

The indignity of being female, the male crab has a much smaller flap.
