Elbow Crabs (Parthenopidae) are crabs with the mightiest elbows!

There are numerous species across the world and some of them have pincers that are each more than twice as long as the rest of their body!

Normally they walk around with their pincers held close to their chest but should you get too close, they open their arms and threaten you with a great, big hug.
