Thread: What Kind of Crab is This?

    Default What Kind of Crab is This?

    This guy squeezed through my shrimp pot tunnel even though I had a zip tie in the middle to keep stuff out. Short legs and spines all over. Very strong legs...he had a death grip with all of them on the wire mesh but I finally got him loose without injury. I've never seen one like this before...anyone know what specie it might be?

    I think you're right, AKbrownsfan. Neat creature...definitely all wheel drive. I put him on the deck and he climbed right up the side of one of the mesh bags I keep my shrimp lines in. Thanks for the link!

    The way they can tighten up, and breathe throught that hole in the one claw is really neat too. They fold up into a very tight 'box'. You can see how if they folded that one claw there is a hole that would be there. Glad you posted that picture.
