The Fuzzy Saltwater Arrow Crab is a slight bit different than the standard arrow crab as it has fuzzy tufts of soft skin coming from its body and legs which allows it to camouflage itself in seaweed. They do not grow as large as the standard arrow crab however it is a hardy and long living crab that likes to be on rocks and scavenges for food. Supplementing food for them is a good idea. Very enjoyable to watch as they move in odd ways.
