    It looks like a crab humped a shrimp and gave birth to a crimp.

    Default That's what happens

    when you start having gay marriages becoming legal. Everything else wants rights too. The shrimp and the crabs what to legitimized for non-inter-species marriages too. And then you start having kids that look like that.

    On the serious side. I would report it to F&G. It just might be an invasive species. If real!
