    Default Leaf porter :)

    This fellow was breaking the leaf by slightly bending it and then carrying it into its hole. The leaf is that of a mangrove (Avicennia sp.)This is a frame grab from my Canon Cinema C300 camera.

    Not sure what this crab is called.

    Quite likely to be Episesarma sp. or something closely related. A typical south Asian mangrove denizen. Nice to know you're making crab footage.
