This crab is found in ‘Monkey Beach’ @ Taman Negara Penang. Unlike the other beaches out of Taman Negara PP, the beaches there were clean.. and the water isn’t mulky in colour. At the beaches here, we found many tiny crabs running around the sandy beach and rushing into ‘holes’ when they sensed us near.
The crab in the picture below is bigger in size than the other tiny ones.
It’s very difficult to catch any of the crabs, especially the larger ones.. But after some time, we found that it was possible to catch one of those. The crab below became ‘stunted’, acting dead, when we managed to surround it.
Enjoy the Picture..
