Ocellate Swimming Crab

The HID light also threw this swimming crab for a loop. Normally when spotted, they spread their arms out wide in a "I'm bigger than I look" defensive position, but with the HID light, I guess I stunned him. The modified hind legs have adapted to make this guy a pretty capable swimmer. Carapace size was about 4 in.
