A tiny Hermit crab testing the waters. Its camouflage was a little blown due to the beautiful red/yellow rocks it was climbing on. The eyes are quite interesting as they appear like from a big cat predator or alike - just in a slightly different body. Seen on a beach in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.
Species: Coenobita variabilis
Common names: Hermit crab, Australian land hermit crab, Aussie
