JAPANESE SPIDER CRAB

Macrocheira kaempferi



Width 218.5 cm Depth 36 cm Height 127 cm (86 x 14 x 50 in)



The greater part of their life is spent at depths of 150 to 300 metres rising to 50 metres to spawn in the breeding season. Some have even been found at depths of 600 metres. Obviously, being a deep sea creature they usually disintegrate with the change in water pressure as the nets containing them are hauled up which makes this a very unusual and precious specimen.
