Crazy Crab!

While shore diving in 10 feet of water among the rebar and concrete remains of a dock destroyed during hurricane Wilma in Cozumel, this crab just happened to move - and I saw it. It is so INCREDIBLY well camouflaged, I am indeed lucky to be able to share with you it's crazy 'costume'. Amazing how natures' creatures use what they find to help them survive!
