Furrowed Crab


Latin name: Xantho pilipes 

These small crabs are around 15 cm in length. This animal is a crustacean that likes to live in areas sometimes covered by seawater. Furrowed crabs are found in the intertidal zone, under rocks on the lower shore, near rock pools. If you turn over a rock, help protect their home by putting the rock back exactly as you found it.
