Stone Crab
Stone crabs are found along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts but are commercially harvested almost entirely in Florida. Adult stone crabs are easily recognized by their oval body and two large claws.

The adult body of the stone crab is dark brownish red, more or less mottled and spotted with dusky gray.

DID YOU KNOW?
·   Fishermen take only the claws of stone crabs and return the live crab back to the water. Stone crabs can regenerate their claws the next time they molt.
·   Stone crabs are usually "right-handed", meaning that the larger crusher claw is usually on the right.
