Orang Utan Crab-Achaeus japonicus (33048430982).jpg

Achaeus japonicus (Say it: ACK-ee-USS JUH-pawn-uh-KUSS), sometimes known as the orangutan crab, is a crab of the family Inachidae (spider crabs or decorator crabs) which can be observed in tropical waters of the central Indo-Pacific. With a carapace of only about 2 centimetres or 0.8 inches in diameter, it has relatively long arms, which are thickly covered with fine hairs, red or reddish brown in colour, and often laden with small bits of debris for further camouflage. It is frequently, but not always, found in association with the bubble coral Plerogyra sinuosa.
