Sponge Crab by WillWarburton Sponge Crab by WillWarburton
Number 2 in our series of awesome crab species.

This is a SPONGE CRAB, which comes from a vast family of crabs called the Dromiidae.

They might look pretty strange but the living sponge on it’s back provides pretty amazing camouflage from predators.

It cuts out a fragment from a living sponge and trims it to its own shape using its claws. The sponge then grows with the crab providing it with constant cover.
