mud crab - mangrove crab


If you can identify the exact species of crab, please post a comment or email me!

This is a mud crab, also called mangrove crab, part of the Scylla species of swimming crabs.­ They have particularly large and powerful claws, so be careful!

I found this crab at the fish market in Kota Kinabalu (Borneo)
