After clicking through a couple of links on the article, I was able to find a picture of the actual new crab species *, can't link directly to it :(), rather than the picture of a similar but different crab in the original article. They are definitely different from my typical thoughts of a crab. They're a lot more pale and have thicker limbs.

It just goes to show that there may yet be many undiscovered creatures living in the depths of the oceans.
