Revealing Remarkable Marine Species: Dr. Rafael Lemaitre's Hermit Crab Discovery


Among the specimens discovered were not only new species of fish, but also a vividly colored hermit crab that had previously only been observed as a colorless museum specimen.

This hermit crab lives in tusk shells, into which it can retract while protecting itself by sealing the shell’s opening with its flat claw.

A once in a lifetime experience!
