South East Asia Sesarmidae

South East Asian Sesarmidae (Terrestrial Crabs, Land Crabs, Freashwater Crabs)

As this crab was active on the forest floor in the mountains of Bali it was not possible to link it with an amazing plant association existing between at least two members of the same genus in Malaysia. That is an association with a prostrate species of pitcher plant where the crabs are raiders of trapped arthropods (mainly insects) in the protective and crab friendly pitcher fluids. Mind you as the pitcher fluid is designed to breakdown exoskeletons it helps to have evolved an anti digestive coating on your own exoskeleton
