Description

The name of this threatened species of crab (Uca arcuata) in Japanese is "shio maneki" or "tide caller." This refers to the way the males wave their large claw over their heads as if they beckon the tides to come in. Due to loss of their natural habitat these crabs are classified as vulnerable (VU).
