Shrimps, Lobsters and other Crustaceans

Shrimps, Lobsters and other Crustaceans belong to the largest group of animals, the Arthropods. Like insects and spiders, which are also arthropods, crustaceans have jointed legs and a hard outer skeleton. There are about 40,000 species of crustaceans, most of which live in the ocean. Crustaceans include crabs, shrimps, lobsters and barnacles, as well as less familiar animals such as mantis shrimps, amphipods and isopods. With the exception of mollusks, crustaceans form the largest and most diverse group of marine animals. For CRABS, please click here.
