Shabby Sponge Crab
Introduction: An outstanding shaggy coat of long, rigid brown hairs can only mean the shabby sponge crab (Dromidia hisutissima). This rather gruff looking crab also carries a cloak of sponge or seaweed on its back, although it seldom hides it completely.
Diet: Minute sea food particles.
Colouration: Stiff brown hairs on a brown body.
Breeding: Eggs hatch into planktonic larvae.
Max size: 40mm.
