We saw this Yellowline Arrow Crab, or Arrow Crab (AKA -Stenorhynchus Seticornis – How do they even say that name!) on a snorkel in the Mt Irvine area of Tobago. It’s been a while since I have seen this type of crab, so it’s a rare sighting. I love the cool blue claws.

Apparently they eat bristle worms, which is the same family as the Bearded Fire Worm. This makes sense as Mt Irvine has allot of Fire Worms.
