This little guy is an Orangutan Crab (so technically not a monkey). Named so (I would guess) because he is covered in long orangey-brown hair that sways in the underwater current. I found this one in a algae patch in Raja Ampat (hence all the green fur he’s sitting on). I like the way his little eyes gleam red in my strobe light while he defiantly sits up and looks at me.
Best viewed large.
