We have been very interested in learning about crabs. Here are a few stories.

Crabs hide in the seaweed and under rocks. Crabs pinch people and crabs eat fish. Babies hatch from eggs and scuttle into the water.


Hermit crabs need a shell to protect their soft body from the hot sun or they will die. When they get bigger they need a bigger shell to live in.


Crabs live in rock pools. Crabs eat fruit and dead fish, they are not fussy and almost eat anything. Me and my papa love eating crabs because it is our favourite thing. Crabs are amazing.
