Download this crab colouring page to add to your crab collection

We are back with another crab coloring page … he is a little different … honestly!

Here are some fun crab facts for you:

1. Crabs vary in size with the smallest species being a Pea Crab and reaches from 0.27 to 0.47 inches in length.  The largest species of crab is a Japanese Spider Crab and has a leg span of 12 feet (from claw to claw).

2. Crabs are also known as decapods because they have 10 legs.  The first pair of legs are modified into claws, called chelae.

3. Crabs have eyes on the stalks, just like snails. They can distinguish colours, but their eyes see a lot less detail than the human eye.

4. Crabs communicate via sound. They produce drumming and flapping sounds by using their claws and pincers.

Those are just a few fun facts for.  Now down to the serious business of our free to download crab colouring printable.  Add him to the one you downloaded on day one:
