Aniculus maximus
Commonly known as the “Hairy Yellow Hermit Crab” or the “Large Hairy Hermit Crab” Aniculus maximus is a species of ‘left-handed hermit crab’ (Diogenidae) that is widely distributed throughout the Indo-Pacific. True to its common name Aniculus maximus’ legs are covered with hair-like setae, which may aid in collecting food. Like other hermit crabs Aniculus maximus is an opportunistic omnivore feeding on a wide variety of organisms and organic matter.

Holacanthella paucispinosa

…a uniquely large species of Neanurid springtail that is endemic to New Zealand. H. paucispinosa is fairly large as far as springtails go with individuals capable of growing to several millimeters long! Like other (smaller) springtails Holacanthella paucispinosa is a scavenger and forages for organic material in leaf litter and under logs.

The light-blue soldier crab, Mictyris longicarpus, inhabits sandy beaches from Singapore and the Bay of Bengal to New Caledonia and Australia. These crabs spend much of their time buried in the sand but emerge to the surface during low tide. They are famous for traveling across the beach in large “armies.” Read more: http://eol.org/pages/4270726 Image by LiquidGhoul via Wikimedia Common

 The Creature Feature: 10 Fun Facts About Velvet Worms
by Mary Bates
Velvet worms, otherwise known as Onychophora, are reclusive little animals that have changed very little in the last 500 million years.
Scientists have described some 180 modern species. They can be found in moist, dark places all around the tropics and Australia and New Zealand. Smaller species are less than an inch long, while the largest reach lengths of about 8 inches.
They come in a dazzling array of colors and exhibit some pretty weird and complex behaviors. I’m sure you’ll be just as charmed by them as I am.
1. Velvet worms have hydrostatic skeletons. Velvet worms don’t have hard exoskeletons like arthropods. Instead, their fluid-filled body cavities are covered in a thin skin and kept rigid by their pressurized internal liquids. They move by the alteration of fluid pressure in the limbs as they extend and contract along the body…

Genus: Macroxiphus
Macroxiphus is a genus of unusual katydids (Tettigoniidae) that are distributed throughout South East Asia and Micronesia. Members of Macroxiphus are unique in that their larvae are exceptional ant mimics, and use their mimicry to trick potential predators into thinking they are harmful ants. Macroxiphus spp. will lose this disguise as they move on into adulthood.
