Underwater crab in the guano
There are a number of different crabs found in the Gomantong caves. LIkely Mr. Wallace will chime in here soon enough with the name of this one...

OK, the eye question - Does it have eyes? Or, because of the cave location, no eyes? Thanks.

Yes, these crabs have eyes. They love the wet areas of the cave with guano, and guano is pretty much everywhere in Gomantong Caves, but the cave is very big with many entrances and has very little dark zone.
