Crab facts:

The Scientific Name of the Crab is Brachyura. Brachyura literally means short tail. It refers to the tail of the crab, folded under the belly shield. Because the tail is folded under in this way, crabs don’t have a visible tail. You can recognize crabs by a body that is more wide than long and they have a hard armor. The eyes of a crab are on little ‘sticks’. These eyes are made out of hundreds of little lenses. The front pair of legs are sharp cutters like scissors. Crabs move sideways and have the ability to dive in sand super quickly.

There are more than 4500 species of crab worldwide. The largest crabs in the world are the Japanese spider crabs. They can grow as tall as 13 feet wide!
Female crabs lay millions of eggs at the same time. She carries them under her belly until they hatch. Crabs hatch from tiny larvae about the size of a pinhead. The lifespan of a small crab averages around 3-4 years, but larger species such as the giant Japanese spider crab can live as long as 100 years.

Crabs can be found in all oceans and in freshwater. Some crabs live on land, sometimes several miles from water. Species such as the fiddler crab live in burrows in the sand or mud, where they stay during winter and high tides. Others live within the shells of oysters or mussels. Most Crabs eat fish, shrimps, algae and worms.
