Strange Looking Yeti Crab

I wonder if any of you have seen a hairy crab. The yeti crab belongs to the crustacean family and its relatives are lobster,  crab, and shrimp. It lacks eyes and has hair-like setae. It feeds on the tissue of mussels and its hair-like setae which covers most of its body play host to mats of chemosynthetic bacteria that can provide a nutritional source for the yeti crab. The yeti crab makes its home in the waters south of Easter Island along the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge. So if you ever want to search for the yeti crab remember it is white and hairy all over.
