    We're going to have to rethink how we name our "Jumbo" shrimp.

    Living in New Orleans I eat shrimp quite a bit, but this "giant crustacean" looks different to me than a standard shrimp, especially in the head region. It's head looks less defined and incredibly small and the feelers, or "tentacles", look short. Cool picture though and I'm glad I saw it. :)

    I can't wait until aliens start abducting people, get a fat one, and freak out like this too.

    Why does everyone want to eat it????? It should be a pet, not food!!!! Or free to live in the ocean.

    Fish are food, not friends.

    I'd certainly want some sushi made from colossal shrimp.

    They're friends. Sushi is disgusting. Fish are cute (some of them).

    Shrimp tastes good. A shrimp I can describe using the word ginormous without a hint of irony will, hopefully, also taste really good and there will be much, much more of it for everyone. We (or everyone who eats shrimp) all win.

    Unless you're just joking, of course.

    Crustaceans disgust me. They are the bottomfeeders of the sea and eat anything they find. I wouldn't even want to imagine putting something like that in my mouth.
