Hello everyone, I'm wondering if I can get some help with this critter?: http://www.footagese...ips/RBR022_0060

A Crab of sorts living in a burrow dug by it or vacated by a boring worm or something.

One colourful character and there's so many here but I don't know the name!

 

The internet here is SO slow that searching online takes longer than writing this request and waiting a couple of days for a reply....

 

So any help would be much appreciated!

 

Richard
