A Crustacean of a Different Color

An ongoing narrative of this blog is that lots of strange plants and animals are out there in the world, waiting to be discovered, even at this late date.  Especially in Southeast Asia.  I have heard about so many new critters in Indonesia that I have declared that country the “Real Lost World.”  And the Philippines isn’t far behind; readers may remember the message I posted on August 25, 2009 about a rat-eating plant.

Now from Palawan, the same island with the rat-eating plant, a purple, fresh-water crab has been discovered.  Wow, any idea what the odd color is good for?  It’s getting to the point that I don’t want to predict what the naturalists will find next.  Click on the link below the picture to read more.
