Description:

Small invertebrate found in a cornish rockpool. I think it had 7 pairs of legs, 4 tail spikes and a pair of antennae. Swam in water flexing its body up and down, ran around on rocks and even jumped into a rockpool at one point while I was trying to catch it. Just under an inch long. Sadly, later fell victim to a crab, R.I.P.
