CLAWS CREEP INTO ISTANBUL!

The Japanese Spider Crab, the strongest and largest of all crabs and one of the toughest sea creatures with their autstanding armoured body can be seen at SEA LIFE.

This species, which lives 500m deep in the Pacific Ocean and specific only to the waters surrounding Japan, can live up to 100 years. Considered an attractive sea creature to some while scary to others, the adult Japanese Spider Crab can measure a mammoth 4m from claw to claw, and weigh up to 20kg.

Crabzilla and other crab species are the newest species to join the aquarium, which contains more than 15,000 sea creatures including Europe’s largest shark family, piranhas, dazzling tropical fish and a walk-through underwater glass tunnel.

 

 

 

 

TEST YOUR STRENGTH

You’ll be able to see exactly how strong crab is with a mechanical device to test the crab’s strength located right next to the crab’s cage. This tool, which will be as strong as the crab itself and is intended to be squeezed like a pair of pliers, will not be attached to the crab and does not harm the crab.

WOW

Japanese Sipider Crabs can reach 4 metres across when fully grown, big enough to straddle a small car!

COOL

Hermit crabs are born without shells and find a suitable shell that they can carry on their back and live in. This can sometimes be an old crust of another crab or sometimes a hard object at sea.
