We just had to share with you this fabulous image of a decorator crab at Tropical Marine Centre's Bristol branch.

Decorator crabs attach pieces of seaweed, rocks and sedentary animals such as corals and sponges to their bodies as camouflage, to protect them from predators. And they can change their outfits to match their environment. 

This is probably one of the best-dressed examples we've ever seen at PFK!
