A California native crustacean has been discovered in rock quarrying in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
The crustaceanic, which can grow up to 30 centimeters long and weighs up to 15 kilograms, was discovered in a rock quarry about 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of Las Vegas, California, The Associated Press reported.
A local wildlife official said the crustaceanism was probably an immature female, which is common to the state, the Associated Press report said.
The Associated Press did not immediately have information on the species or the age of the specimen.
The rock quarry was set up to extract the crustaces from the desert floor.
