Caption: River crab with eggs, being held in a hand. Crabs are crustaceans, an animal with five pairs of legs and an external shell protecting a soft body. They develop from eggs that are carried by the female under her abdomen (as seen here, black). Crabs are found in both freshwater and in the sea, as well as on land. Different crabs eat food ranging from dead animals to prey such as other shellfish and crustaceans. Photographed in Howick, South Africa.
