From a distance I first thought there were no marine crabs on the cliffs of Socotra as I was picturing bright red ones like those of Galapagos.

When I had some time on a small beach on the way to Shuab beach of west Socotra I did see lots of crabs, but the were colored in such a way that they blended well with the surroundings – especially when viewed from the top.

Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂
