Forget front crawl – this weird creature is doing the front crab!

The rare and mysterious orangutan crab was filmed swimming just of the Indonesian island of Lembeh.

The small creature makes for a strange sight as it kicks off from the sea bed and waves its legs to propel it through the water.

The video was shot by Atsushi Sadaki, 59, a business design consultant who has been diving for 20 years.

He said: “It is an orangutan crab and they are rare.

“I have seen one or two before but this is the first time I have seen one swimming.
