Also known as Crustaceans, Anomura Crabs, Hermit Crabs, Yellow Hairy Hermit Crab, Left-handed Hermit Crab, and Hairy Yellow Hermit Crab.
Found both day and night across coral and rocky reefs over sand and rubble areas.
They feed on fish, invertebrates and each other!
Length - 12cm
Depth - 0-35m
Sometimes known as the left-handed Hermit Crab, because its left claw is enlarged instead of the right (in line with other hermit crabs)
Anomura crabs are considered false crabs, they have a longer abdomen and the back legs are modified or reduced so hardly noticeable.
These crabs include the hermit crabs and squat lobsters.
Many thousands of species live worldwide in sea water, fresh water and on land.
Hermit crabs change their shells regularly but only when they find a larger and newer shell to feel safe in!
