Tuesday Crustie: Da Ba De

Yo listen up here’s a story
About a little crab that lives in a blue world
And all day and all night and everything he sees
Is just blue like him inside and outside...

A newly described species, Discoplax celeste, from the tiny Christmas Island in the southern Indian Ocean.
