Spotted box Crab aprox 4"-6" rare

Add to Cart
The most distinctive feature of large lithodid crab is the fact that when it pulls its legs under itself and folds its claws across its front, as it often does, a large notch on the carpus of its chelipeds combined with a smaller notch on the carpus of leg 2 lie beside each other, creating a prominent tube like opening presumably used for breathing.

Other features include the fact that its abdomen is completely calcified and its legs are not markedly longer than the carapace. The carapace has tubercles with sharp spines and has no pronounced depression on the posterodorsal surface. It is rounded posterolaterally and does not resemble an equilateral triangle, and it has no lateral extensions which cover its legs when viewed from above.
