We’re off to meet one more need member of the crab family! This strange looking little creature is one wild crab!
- Arrow crabs live in the tropical oceans near reefs.
- Arrow crabs are carnivores- they eat duster worms and small invertebrates.
- They have long thin legs, with some species that have legs reaching up to 10inches.
- They are also known as the spider crab.
- Males are larger than females.
- Arrow crabs have long thin, bumpy carapaces.
- Arrow crabs are nocturnal.
- They are very territorial.
- Arrow crabs will molt their exoskeleton when they grow larger!
We love these crazy looking crabs! We bet you thought they were a weird spider too! Neat aren’t they?
My least favorite animal of all time is the daddy long legs…well it has a tie now with this arrow crab that looks just like a waterlogged daddy long legs. *shivers*
