A fat Crab checks out my Camera

I dive about 6 m down in the Keubooms River at PlettenbergBay and meet a big mudcrab (Scylla serrata) on the bottom I remain still near him and he comes to check out my camera and has a feel then departs - in the defensive pose.

Those pincers are not small!



Took Zephyr to see one, he dived down close to it and it lunged up towards the approaching lad kick up clouds of sediment - an impressive sight. Zeph was not keen to return!
