Hiding in plain sight

Category: Sense of Place

It's amazing how amazing how our world is filled with creatures with amazing camouflage ability both underwater and on land. While inspecting the pylons of the dive centre, I came across brightly coloured spider crab camouflaged hiding in a red and orange seafan hanging on while filtering particles from the water. The matching colour shows as if they are made as a pair.

Location: Mabul Island, Sipadan
