This eety-beety creature is the Orangutan Crab (Achaeus japonicus) which only has a carapace (body) of about 0.8 inches in diameter with extra long arms compared to its body. It’s covered in reddish brown hair sometimes laden with bits of “stuff” like shells or sand to increase its camouflaging capabilities
