Palawan Purple Crab

Main product image (Click to zoom)

Discovered in 2012, the Palawan Purple Crab is endemic to the Phillipine island of Palawan and is endangered by the mining activities in the region. These beautiful crabs vary in colour, from bright purple to a more reddish colour, potentially indicating status symbol and the sex of the crab.

This species is a freshwater crab, which means its ability to disperse is limited to rivers and freshwater streams. This can also potentially create a challenge in terms of its survival amidst human interactions.

This piece was hand-stitched on 100% Kona cotton and is framed in a 8-inch Elbesee beechwood hoop.
