Kiwa hirsuta is a crustacean discovered in 2005 in the South Pacific Ocean. This decapod, which is approximately 15 cm long, is notable for the quantity of silky blond setae (resembling fur) covering its pereiopods (thoracic legs, including claws). Its discoverers dubbed it the "yeti lobster" or "yeti crab". Order: Decapoda, Infraorder: Anomura, Family: Kiwaidae, Genus: Kiwa, Species: Kiwa hirsuta Macpherson, Jones & Segonzac, 2006
