picking fights with boxer crabsThis week in Bunaken… Dive guide Oke learned that attitude sometimes comes in small packages and that you should not pick fights with boxer crabs. During a dive Oke found a very pretty boxer crab that he pointed out to his divers. Normally boxer crabs are quite elusive and shy, but not this guy!

Thank you Phil Clarke for the great photo!
