Hairy squat lobster aka Fairy crab (Lauriea siagiani). You may be confused with its name but truly it's a crab not a lobster. Its tiny hair traps food particles so it just combs itself to have a meal. Having a meal and bath all together. Talk about killing 2 birds with a stone! About 1.5cm in length. #fairycrab #hairysquatlobster #macrophotography #inonucl165 #inonucl165m67 #inon #fantasea #scubadiving #rx100iv #sony #sonyaction #rx100m4 #sonyphotography #sonyasia #muckdiving #muckdive #sonyrx #diver #scubadiver #scuba_dive #fishesofinstagram #manado #manadodive #bunaken #bunakenisland #tasikdivers #tasikria #underwaterphotography #uwphoto #uwmacro

Lance and Simone guided us on our underwater adventure through Milford Sound. The glacial/snow melt creates a tannin tinged freshwater layer above the heavier salt water fed into the "sound" through the Tasman Sea. This dark, freshwater layer blocks more light than typical ecosystems creating a unique "deep water dive" experience at shallower depths. Pictured next to me is a species of coral known as Black Coral, though it appears white, its skeleton is black. Usually this coral is found around depths of over 100 feet where little light penetrates and water temperatures plummet. We were required to wear semi-dry suits with a thickness of 8mm, some of the thickest wetsuits available before advancing to dry suits. A cold, once in a lifetime experience I will not soon forget. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This "zebra" has a few tricks that make it a tougher prey than the land-zebra you may know better.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Zebras have fleshy lips, but don't be fooled - these are just for moving their prey into the right spot for their razor sharp teeth. Even if you catch one, they release a toxin into their flesh, making their meat stink and taste awful! They are only found around South Africa and Mozambique, so let's look after them!
