A new kind of freshwater crab has been discovered on the Philippine island of Palawan. The purple crustacean, called Insulamon Palawanense, is one of four new 1-2 inch wide species in this genus.
German study author Hendrik Freitag says the brilliant color on this inch wide creatures may not serve a purpose more complex than recognition for others of its kind.
I love arthropods and crustaceans partially because three of my good friends are cancers. Also, myself, my brother, and my favorite gay Bay Area Shaman are Scorpios.
Thrive on, creepy pinching brethren.
