Invertebrates: Arthropods: Crabs

Crabs are arthropods, which are invertebrates with a segmented body, jointed appendages and an exoskeleton. The crabs in this gallery are too numerous to list, but include everything from our trusted beach friend the hermit crab to creatures with names like "broadback sumo crab" and "mottled purse crab."
