I guess I'm just used to seeing those giant Pacific spiny lobsters.A crustacean toob would be absolutely wondrous, dare I wish they might flesh it out with a few tiny crustaceans more or less in scale with the larger counterparts. Always room for another fiddler crab!

Is it a different species?The AAA spiny lobster is almost identical in size, about 16cm excluding antennae (31cm including).The pattern of spines is very different, and the eyes are much larger proportionally. Since AAA figures are cast I think it's safe to say they represent different species. Most AAA casts are either of southeast Asian species (or relatively common as pets), so that would be the place to start looking for an ID.
