About Blue Swimmer Crabs
Blue Swimmer Crabs are generally distinguished by the fact that their last pair of legs are modified as swimming paddles.
They are active swimmers but when inactive, they bury themselves in the sediment leaving only their eyes, antennae and gill chamber opening exposed.
With the onset of warmer weather the blue swimmer crab slowly begin their migration back into shallow inshore waters for us to view and enjoy.
