The Calico Crab is a type of walking crab that has back legs that are suited for walking, rather than swimming or digging. They are typically scavengers, feeding on various organic matter. One unique feature of the Calico Crab is that it may carry a Tri-colored Anemone on its back, which can detach during molting.
