Uca vocans

17. April 2015

Fiddler crabs are always something very special. They live along the border of water and land. During the tide they hide in wholes in the sand. At low water the come out of their hiding places and search for food that the water left behind.

The males display their mighty claw to impress the females, but this also is used to awe other males. Within the very same species males exist, in which the left claw or the right is enlarged.

Currently we were able to import some males from Thailand that exhibit extraordinary large claws, which gain even humans respect!

For our customers: the animals have code 489704 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
