This hairy crab is named after the world's favorite monster
A rare crab species gets its name from everybody's favorite monster -- the Yeti.
And that's because it's hairy. Very, very hairy.
Scientists found that yeti crabs are blind because they actually don't have eyes.
Thankfully the blond bristles on their legs helps them live. They eat the bacteria that gets caught in it.
Yeti crabs are around 15 centimeters long and found in the dark depths of the ocean. They find a sweet spot between freezing to death in the cold water by living near hydrothermal vents.
So the chances of you seeing this yeti crab are as slim as seeing the infamous Yeti creature itself.
