The crab lives in the sand of beaches. Burrowing themselves deep into the sand allows them to receive moisture from the ocean as well as protection from any predators.
"Crabs are omnivores, which means they feed primarily on algae. Other food sources include freshly dead fish, mollusks, worms, crustaceans, fungi, and bacteria. This however depends on their availability and the crab species".
A crabs preditors consist of small fish, jellyfish, birds, mammals and large fish.
The conservation status of crabs is prolific if we don't release the females "for every 1 female crab taken 4 new crabs will not be born"
