kimberley032 Female Uca
kimberley032 is a photo of a female fiddler crab from the shores of Roebuck Bay near Broome, Australia.
The male fiddler has one of its claws that is far larger than the other. They engage in what appear to be...
...ceremonial 'sword fights'...
...with their great big claws.
The female fiddler crabs (uca) are far more practical...
...with functional claws of equal size and sensibly suited for sifting efficiently through the mud and sand for food.
