Caption: Common shore crab. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a juvenile common shore crab, Carcinus maenas. The common shore crab is a relative of the swimming crabs (family Portunidae), but it lacks flattened paddles on its hind limbs, and consequently it is only a moderate swimmer. Its forelimbs are powerful pincers. The common shore crab feeds on worms, molluscs, algae and carrion. It lives mostly around the shore. Its range extends from Norway through the Mediterranean to the northern Atlantic coasts of Africa.
