Furry Crab

Found in the South Pacific 900 miles south of Easter Island, the Kiwa Hirsuta lives 7,510 feet deep in the ocean. The diving expedition was organized by Robert Vrijenhoek of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in California. He describes it as having surprising characteristics including pincers covered with sinuous hair-like strands.
