Caribbean Spiny Lobster

A Caribbean spiny lobster, named for the forward-pointing spines covering its body, is one of the largest crustaceans on coral reefs and seagrass beds in the Caribbean Sea. To scare off predators, these spiny lobsters wave their horn-like antennas over their eyes, according to NOAA Fisheries. The smaller so-called antennules detect both movement in the water and chemicals. This photo was taken while NOAA mapped underwater habitats in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
