  • Most crabs are oval, rectangular or triangular. They have a front pair of pincers and four pairs of walking legs.


  • The skeleton has joints, where the chitin is thin and flexible. This flexibility permits movement. The skeleton inhibits growth. Growth can only be done by molting the skeleton. Molting happens after a soft skeleton is secreted beneath the hard outside layer. The old skeleton splits and allows the animal to crawl out. The soft skeleton then hardens quickly
