    What is the crab-shaped thing at bottom? It's totally opaque; a shrimp from an odd angle?

    It could actually be a small crab. The late stages of crab larvae do look like actual crabs, except smaller.

    However, I don't think it would be as "spiky" on the back. Given that this is near the surface it might just be a detritus of some sort.
