Fully aquatic crabs
I have been looking for a while but have not been able to find one. I would love to have some sort of crab but I do not want to set up a vivarium right now. I want one that is fully aquatic and does not need to come out of the water, ever.
Is there any such creature? If there is, are there any that are completely fresh water or are they all brachish and salt?
Re: Fully aquatic crabs
there are no 100% true aquatic freshwater crabs, however there are a few that only occasionally have been seen on land, giving the reasonable argument that they spend most of their time in water.
look for Sesarma bidens & Sesarma sp both commonly called red claw crab or red crabs. both hail from Sri Lanka and only appear on land during the rainy season.
also any of the genus Brachyura crabs from South America are hardly ever found on land.
