Spiny King Crab

Paralithodes rathbuni

Physical Characters : Spiny king crabs prowl the deep seafloor for live food, eating other crabs and sea stars. But when they can't find fresh food, they're quick to lunch on leftover scraps or dead animals that fall from above. They are upto 6 inches or 15 cm across in size.

This crab has clutching claws and fast-moving mouth parts - they help the crab grab food, tear it apart and shovel the pieces into its mouth.

Distribution : They are mostly spreaded at seafloor depth of 500 to 2,400 feet or 152 to 732m.

Food : Mostly they are eating crabs, sea stars, scavenged food.
