Notes: Calico Crabs are walking crabs, meaning that their back legs are designed for walking rather than being flattened and used for swimming and digging. Calico Crabs are usually scavengers rather than hunters. Another interesting note is that the Calico Crab usually has a Tri-colored Anemone, Calliactis tricolor on its back, that comes off when the crab molts.
