Sexy Blonde Crustacean

Via Pharyngula, it seems that the appeal of silky blonde hair is not limited to humans (or even vertebrates).

Scientists said the animal, which they named Kiwa hirsuta, was so distinct from other species that they created a new genus and new family for it.

A team of American-led divers found the animal in waters 7,540 feet deep at a site 900 miles south of Easter Island last year, according to Michel Segonzac of the French Institute for Sea Exploration, or IFREMER.

Yeah, she's cute. But I just can't get used to that European style.
