Tan Yucel spotted a hidden happy face on kiwa hirsuta.
And Chris Noessel noticed a resemblance to a certain famous cinema drag queen.

NEWSFLASH! Yesterday, the Census of Marine Life received the prestigious International Cosmos Prize for its contribution to global understanding of natural life. Part of that contribution was its discovery of kiwa hirsuta, aka the yeti crab.
Congratulations, Census of Marine Life!
