Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, March 10, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

A funny little crab with a funny name, that’s the orangutan crab. And they do look like primates. These little crabs mostly live in bubble corals or mushroom corals, though I have seen them in other kinds or corals as well. They are a decorator crab, and gather red algae to embellish their skinny little appendages, which then looks like primate fur. This one is sitting in a mushroom coral.
