Hermit Crabs and True Crabs (Anomura-Brachyura) - My Hawaiian Images
Powered by SmugMug Log In

One of the odder crustaceans you'll see in Maui waters...was thrilled last night to have my very first sighting of a Hawaiian pom-pom crab (Lybia edmondsoni). This amazing crab keeps a stinging anemone at the end of each claw for defense and hunting, giving it its common name, as well as an unusual appearance.
