Hermit crabs wear shells to protect their soft abdomens, which are asymmetrical and curved to fit the spiral shape of their shell. Like all crabs, hermit crabs are decapods; they have five pairs of legs, including a pair of claws. One claw is much larger than the other, the hermit crab uses it for defense and food shredding while it uses the smaller claw for eating. The second and third pairs of legs help the crab walk, and the last two pairs hold the hermit crab in its shell, Pagurus Sheep crab, Loxorhynchus grandis Sheep crab, Loxorhynchus grandis Sheep crab, Loxorhynchus grandis Spot prawn, Pandalus platycaros Ghost shrimp, seen in a cross section view of its habitat, an underwater hole, Neotrypaea californiensis Spot prawn, Pandalus platycaros Spot prawn atop scallop, Pandalus platycaros, Crassedoma giganteum Sally lightfoot crab on volcanic rocks, Punta Albemarle, Grapsus grapsus, Isabella Island Sally lightfoot crab on volcanic rocks, Punta Albemarle, Grapsus grapsus, Isabella Island Sally lightfoot crab on volcanic rocks, Punta Albemarle, Grapsus grapsus, Isabella Island Sally lightfoot crab on volcanic rocks, Punta Albemarle, Grapsus grapsus, Isabella Island Krill, Baja California (Pacific Ocean), Thysanoessa spinifera Spiny lobster and several abalone, Panulirus interruptus, San Clemente Island Spiny lobster, Panulirus interruptus, Catalina Island Hermit crab in olive shell, Pagurus granosimanus, Olivella biplicata, Monterey, California Spiny lobster, San Benito Islands, Panulirus interruptus, San Benito Islands (Islas San Benito) Pelagic red tuna crab, open ocean, Pleuroncodes planipes, San Diego, California Pelagic red tuna crab, open ocean, Pleuroncodes planipes, San Diego, California Pelagic red tuna crabs, Coronado Islands, Pleuroncodes planipes, Coronado Islands (Islas Coronado) Acorn barnacle feeding amidst strawberry anemones, Monterey Peninsula, Megabalanus californicus, Corynactis californica A California spiny lobster sits amid four red abalone on a shale reef shelf, Panulirus interruptus, Haliotis rufescens, San Diego Xantus swimming crab, Portunus xantusii, La Jolla, California California spiny lobster eating squid eggs, Panulirus interruptus, Loligo opalescens, La Jolla   more ...
