Decorator Crab

The Decorator crab puts sponges, algae, and whatever else it can find on its back for camouflage. However, the Decorator crab pictured here is not decorated very much at all. The Decorator crab's range is from Alaska to Mexico. It can most often be found on sponges below 50 feet. Its color is usually a shade of orange.
