Alien looking creature from the Deep

 In the mid 90’s I spent a lot of time in Manado North Sulawesi Indonesia diving with Murex Dive Resort. I had the pleasure of  diving the Bunakan Island Group, Banka Island, and from the Serenade Live-aboard the Sangir Islands.  I have seen hairy crabs like this in these areas but always in a barrel sponge.   This particular crab was out in the open on some coral.

If considering Indonesia for a vacation check out Murex dive resort.  The diving is great,  The food is incredible, the resort is very comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful. www.murexdive.com/

While in North Sulawesi, spend a few days to a week diving in the lembeh Strait.  This area is know for incredible macro, while the Bunaken group is great for wide angle.  http://www.lembehresort.com
