Crabs are one of those common critters we encounter at the beach or local jetty. Most people don’t pay any attention to them, especially as they are quick to scuttle away and hide if you get too close. But did you know that the world’s largest crab has legs that are wider than a car and that the smallest crab is no bigger than a pea?
Crabs are just one member of a fascinating bunch of creatures called the crustaceans. These incredible animals come in an amazing variety of shapes and sizes, and live in the oceans, rivers, lakes and even on land. The wonderful new book Young Reed Crabs and Crustaceans is all about these fascinating creatures. Designed for the young reader, the book will entertain and delight. The reader will discover what crustaceans are, how they live, how they grow, how they breathe, what they eat and what feeds on them. Plus information is given on different crustacean species and families, like the spider crabs, cleaner shrimps, prawns, spiny lobsters and mantis shrimps.
Filled with spectacular pictures, and packed with interesting facts and figures, the young reader will delve deep into the fascinating world of crabs and other crustaceans in this fascinating new book.
