About the Yeti Crab

The yeti crab is a fairly new species of crab. Also it's so different that it got it's own name, "Kiwa tyleri." It's found in the cold waters off Antarctica, the first of the yet crab family. The length of this crustacean ranges from half a foot to under an inch. It's white with very hairy claws. The use of the hair on it's claws is to carry bacteria, it's food source, and use it to fight off toxins as well. Furthermore they also use the hairs as sensors because they're blind as well.
