Tuesday Crustie: Caught!

Aratus pisonii is commonly known as the Mangrove tree crab.

Personally, I don’t think it looks like a mangrove tree at all...

I love the brilliant red in its claws. It makes it look like it was just involved in scene from a horror movie. But this crab is probably no significant threat to a person:
