Kiwa puravida is a species of deep-sea dwelling decapod, a member of the genus Kiwa, a genus of animals sometimes informally known as "yeti crabs". Kiwa puravida was discovered living on the 1,000-metre (3,300 ft) deep sea bottom off the coast of Costa Rica in 2006 by Andrew Thurber, William J. Jones and Kareen Schnabel. The only other members of its family, Kiwa hirsuta, and the Hoff crab, or Kiwa tyleri, are crabs with similarly hairy claws. Order: Decapoda, Infraorder: Anomura, Family: Kiwaidae, Genus: Kiwa, Species: Kiwa puravida Thurber, Jones & Schnabel, 2011
