Diet- sea worms and mollusks. Considered scavengers. They find their prey
while walking along the sea bed.
Anatomy- A hard exoskeleton. 5 pairs of jointed legs and a pair of pincers. It
can grow up to 2 ft long and weighs up to 10 pounds. It molts its skin many times as it grows. The male is two-thirds
the size of the female. The long tail is not a weapon; it is used as their controls for steering, and for turning
itself over when it is flipped upside down.
Interesting fact- It is not really a crab, it is more
closely related to Anachnids, (spiders and scorpions).
