The colorful Insulamon crabs of the Palawan Island were recently discovered by scientists studying the biodiversity of the area. The crabs have become specially adapted to the island’s source of freshwater and must undergo all stages of their development in freshwater.

Researchers plan to study Palawan’s freshwater prawns to learn more about this area’s unique biodiversity.
