Yeti Crab

Today let's give a twist to the types of animals that we usually talk about, and let's comment today on a kind of crab considered very pretty. Reasons are not lacking, since as soon as you see it you will realize that it is one of the most curious and beautiful types that we will find.

The crab Yeti surprises everyone who knows him. Above all, because of its appearance. Let's start by talking about some of its most basic features. And it is that the Yeti crab lives in the southern Pacific Ocean, at a distance of approximately 2.300 meters deep.

What makes it most striking is its appearance, as we have already said. And it is that the species is covered by a fabric similar to white silk feathers. In addition, its size is usually approximately 15 centimeters in length, so we could say that it is a crab with a more or less interesting size.

The characteristics of Kiwa hirsuta they are very curious. It resides in the depths of the Pacific, where there are some fluids that could be harmful to other species. What we do have to know is that the claws of the crab have a filamentous bacterium that prevents it from being intoxicated, thus giving it different advantages.

If we took into account your eating, we could say that it is a carnivorous species. On the other hand, recent research has confirmed that the habitat in which it lives is devoid of light, which confirms one of its most curious characteristics: it is blind.

We know a lot about the Yeti crab. But it is also true that there are still many without knowing exactly. In this way, it will be necessary to investigate much more in order to clarify all the mysteries that surround him. Of course, we still think that it is a very curious species.
