wow thanks for this, I didn't even know they did that. The normal crabs you find on beaches don't, as far as I know, shed their shells. This puts

The spider crab is from the family of crabs called Majidae, if you google this, you'll find many more facinating crabs.
So many people poo poo the ocean as being a lifeless airless pit, which to humans maybe it is, but out of everywhere on Earth, the oceans facinate me
