Sponge Crab (Undetermined ID), Martinique, France
Sponge crabs are real camouflage artists. They cut down chunks of sponge and wear them like a costume. The sponge continues to live and grow with the crab, sometimes covering him entirely. That’s the reason why identification can be very tricky ... as there is not enough crab showing.
