A remarkable replica of a facinating animal!
Our Plastic Striped Shore Crab
Our striped shore crab toy or replica is made of hard plastic and measures 2 1/4 inches from side to side and 2 inches from front to back. Its name is moulded into the underside. This plastic crab is one of our series of lively and lifelike plastic crustaceans. Its realistic shape and details will be enjoyed as part of a school project, diorama, plastic animal collection, as a party favor, or gift. Our striped shore crab toy is for decoration or play only. It does not float, and should NOT be put in your aquarium. However, you can make an interesting sea-life or aquarium shoebox diorama using this and other plastic sea life and aquatic mammals, sharks, fish, sea turtles, birds, and decor from our gift shop. There is no mess, no feeding, and no tank cleaning :) Come look through our entire collection of crab toys and gifts.
Although there are over 50 crab families and thousandss of species, all crabs have basically the same body plan: four pairs of walking legs and one pair of claws (also called nippers or pincers). Their shell is actually their skeleton, called an exoskeleton, and protects their thorax, gills and the internal organs of the head. Like the octopus and sea star, if a crab loses a limb it will regenerate (grow back).
