Bell posted the images to social media in an attempt to figure out what the creature is, and the pictures quickly went viral. Guesses flew in, with many claiming it is some sort of parasite that latches onto fish tongues.

However, when experts got ahold of the image, they immediately knew what it was, and they say the creature is actually quite harmless.

The creature was found to be a juvenile crab, and Butler named him Eric. Unfortunately, the little guy died soon afterwards. RIP Eric…
