Thank you :)
Thank you very much Sukanya, will use the suggested common name. Happy Spotting!
This is a hermit crab. These soft-shelled crabs find empty mollusc shells to hide in and carry on their backs like portable homes. I am sorry I do not know the exact name of the red crab you have spotted...I am sure someone else will soon give you the correct ID....meanwhile if you like you can use Hermit Crab as the common name.
