What's Included

Male fiddler crabs are adorned with one extremely large claw. This claw is mostly used for communication and to attract a mate. Fiddler crabs live on still, calm shorelines, and are a fun part of the marine fauna of Southwest Florida. We explore their habitat and marvel at the sheer tonnage of mud they clean up for the estuary.
