PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A woman from New Smyrna Beach, Florida , says she made a spiritual discovery as she walked the sand. Cathy Rose Rader says when she looks at the shell of this horseshoe crab , she sees the face of Jesus .

A Florida woman says an image of Jesus appeared on a horseshoe crab shell . She has compared it to Rembrandt's "Head of Christ" (left). That's when she turned around and saw the image of Jesus on the crab shell .

The devout Christian then turned to a horseshoe crab shell that was recently given to her and held it up to the light — and that's when she saw it: an image of Jesus Christ on the bottom.

"It is crazy," Rader told InsideEdition.com. "I was trying to find funding for my book and asked God for help and he is always saying, 'Wait on me.

'"At first, she didn’t believe it and started Googling for images of the underside of a horseshoe crab shell. She found hers looked totally different.

When she showed it to her friends, many agreed it looked like Christ. Others did not.

“It doesn’t look like him to every person, but when you hold it to the light, it comes through," she said.

She said she is "absolutely" taking it as a sign from above.

Rader received the shell on May 4 and made the discovery a short time later. She said she wanted to keep the news of the image to herself at first, but then shared it with a local news station, which helped her crab shell go viral.

The shell is now on display at a local library in the town, where it's protected by a glass case and security.

"Not everyone is going to see Christ and that is totally fine," she said, adding, "It is something for me."

The photographer also says that "we need a sign because the news around the world is so bad" and hopes that the story of the shell can bring encouragement and joy to others.

Dinosaurs Could Barely Use Their Tongues .
They were more like alligators than birds in this case.That's a notable difference from how dinos are typically portrayed, movies like Jurassic World are often keen to show velociraptors and others with fully functioning tongues. Even though dinosaurs are ancestors to birds, this biological difference shows how evolution has played a role in animals that populate the world today.
