Arrow Crab HD Video by Morphologic

Posted on Monday, March 8th, 2010 at 8:48 am by

Early this morning, the guys at Morphologic released their latest HD reef video depicting an Arrow Crab (Stenorhynchus seticornis) and giving it a “Terminator” feel. Looking more like some high-tech alien, The Arrow Crab, which is also known as the Spider Crab, has a small triangular body, and a pointed head and long hinged legs. When defending itself, or going after pray, this crab moves surprisingly fast.

The Arrow Crab in the video, Morphologic notes, looks daunting while guarding a cave entrance. This particular individual, has actually lost one of it’s 8 walking legs, but Morphologic explains that several hours after they shot this video, the crab molted, regenerating it’s lost leg.
