Borneo Blood Red Crab (Geosesarma cf. rathbunae)


The Borneo Blood Red Crab is a uniformly deep red species of Geosesarma (popularly known as Vampire Crabs) found in tropical streamside habitat in Kalimantan Borneo. Like all vampire crabs, they are largely terrestrial crustaceans found throughout several Indonesian islands and will do well in a semi-aquatic habitat. In the wild, they inhabit tropical stream banks and hillsides and are usually found in large groups. In captivity, they require a warm, humid environment with clean moving water. They make ideal and fascinating residents of naturalistic terrariums or paludariums.
