The hooked hairs on this spider crab's legs serve as a natural form of Velcro. The crab attaches red, calcium-rich algae and other objects to itself for camouflage.
Scientists believe it's also possible the algae may help deter predators. This species was earlier known only to exist in the Indian Ocean, and was found for the first time in the South Pacific during the Santo 2006 expedition in Vanuatu.
