Edible crab
« on: Mon, 05 March 2018, 07:39:51 AM »
This crab was collected by fishermen near Bigi Pan, February '18. It looks fit for swimming with such flat hind legs.

Any ID?

Thanx!

My guess would be some Callinectes species, but I have very little knowledge on crabs (yet...  ::)) and the ID is made more difficult as the fishermen obviously removed its claws. :-\

Best, Auke
