Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Prefers sandy substrates (Ref. 2899). Large chela is used to crush snails and molluscan shells of hermit crabs. Reported to be mildly toxic to toxic. Toxicity of its flesh may be a result of accumulation of toxins from its diet (Ref. 102986). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
