Japanese spider crabs



The Japanese spider crab is a species of marine crab that is native to the waters around Japan. It is the largest crab in the world, with a leg span that can reach up to 3.8 meters (12.5 feet) and a weight of up to 19 kilograms (42 pounds). These crabs are known for their long, spindly legs and delicate, spider-like appearance. They are typically found at depths of 50 to 300 meters (160 to 980 feet) and prefer to live in areas with rocky bottoms and plenty of algae to eat. 

The Japanese spider crab is considered a delicacy in Japan and is often served in high-end restaurants. However, due to overfishing, the Japanese spider crab is now considered a vulnerable species and is protected by Japanese law.
