Hideous Snowman Crab? Mar 8, 2006

El nombre se ve bonito, pero el animalejo está espantoso.
Saludos.
Pardon:
Horrible Crabe-Yéti?
Le nom est joli, certes, mais la bestiole, horrible.
Salut.

l'anglais reste à inventer, je crois Mar 8, 2006

Bonjour,
D'après les infos que j'ai vues à la télé hier, "kiwi hirsuta" est le nom latin scientifique de cette langouste poilue, aveugle et blanche (profondeurs obligent), "galatée yéti" son nom français. Les autres langues restent donc à inventer - du pain sur la planche en perspective !

Appelons-le Bob Mar 8, 2006

Pourquoi ne pas l'appeler Bob, le crustacé poilu?
Ça marcherait en anglais: Let's call him Bob!
