I have no idea what type of crab it is but it's very, very cute.

I have no idea what species it is, but judging from it's claws, it looks like its a carnivore. Sharp claws are used for cutting meat, spoon-shaped claws are used for scraping algae. That's about all I can say, sorry I couldn't give you more info!

update: looks like a mix between a Gorilla crab and a stone crab... gorilla crabs appear "hairy" though I think, and this guy seems kind of bald lol. So I'm not sure what species still, but search gorilla crab and stone crab, that may put you on the right track.
