Japanese spider crab by WillWarburton Japanese spider crab by WillWarburton
We'll kick things off here with cool types of crabs with more interesting varieties of crabs coming this week!

This is a JAPANESE SPIDER CRAB.

These crabs have the longest leg span of any arthropod in the world reaching up to 3.8metres or 12 feet.

The spider crab is one of the longest living creatures in the world living up to 100 years of age.

Despite looking like something out of a sci fi horror film they're surprisingly peaceful in nature and feed on animal carcasses and shellfish.
