Crabs make you laugh

Muck diving in the Philippines provides loads of opportunity to photograph crabs. They are everywhere, some are very obvious and others extremely well hidden.  Here are our favourite crab photos from our trip.

Version 2

Angry crab. These crabs made me smile every time I took a photo. It’s as if they are posing for the camera.

Version 2

Smooth/Shameface box crab. You have to be quick to get a photo of these crabs, they quickly bury themselves in the sand as you approach.

 

Version 2

Hermit anemone crab (my favourite). Note the small anemones attached to the shell for added protection from predators.

Version 2

Crab and mango,  Most crabs scurry away when approached, but not this one.  It was too busy eating a mango.

Version 2

Flame box crab

Version 2

Yellow eyed puffer fish feasting on a crab. It’s no wonder the crabs keep scurrying away.
