This incredibly beautiful little creature is a Hairy Squat Lobster (Lauriea siagiani.) It lives on Giant Barrel Sponges and is remarkably colored, with an intense pink body, purple spots, and bright yellow hairs that protrude in all directions. There are always more surprises to be discovered in the ocean!
