The people of the small fishing community of Beluran (Borneo Island) are very proud of their giant shrimp monument!

 

The huge crustacean concrete sculpture is located on the central plaza. It could also be a Rock Lobster or Langouste, rather than a shrimp. It does not look like a prawn.

 

The sign says "Do not damage public property".

 

If you can identify the exact species of crustacean that this is supposed to represent, please post a comment or email me!
