Hairy Crab

We don't often see crabs while diving, so it was a surprise to spot this little guy as he is so well camouflaged. This dive was fairly shallow, around 15 metres, at the Abrolhos Islands. I suppose crabs are more creatures of the shoreline!


  1. I've never seen such a pink, frilly crab before, lucky find and excellent shot!

  2. So it is amazing photo. I would not believe that it can so easily settle on hand. Thanks for all the new photos. Hello. Peter.
