One Response to African moon crab at 6th.Ave Aquarium on Clement St., San Francisco

  1. Yep, that's an odd looking crab. Right now, with Easter around the corner, locals are out catching land crabs for Easter dinners. A pvc pipe is crossed with metal wires at the top and stuck down in the crab's holes. When it is finally taken away, the crab comes up and is caught. Then they are either put in a box with corn meal for a few days to purge them or in a cooler with sea water in it to save until they have enough. For someone who grew up with East Coast blue crabs, land crabs (and moon crabs) just don't whet my appetite!
