Diet

It's an omnivore so can feed on both small insects and vegetation.

Fun fact

Red devil crabs keep their eggs tucked inside their bodies until they hatch giving the appearance of a live birth.

Habitat

The crabs come from the island of Java in Indonesia.

Red Devil crabs have bright-yellow eyes which contrast sharply with their orange abdomens. They live on land and as such are at threat from deforestation and habitat destruction. At only a few centimetres across, their small size helps them to squeeze in and around rock and debris. Unlike most crabs they don't need to spend much time in water. They can normally be found climbing around the forest floor looking for insects to eat.

Animal zone

Deep Blue One

Deep Blue One is home to an array of colourful tropical fish, amazing corals and large mangrove trees.

Representing where the rainforests meet the reef, the lagoon reflects the diversity of aquatic life and unique habitats found in and around many of the islands and archipelagos in the western Pacific Ocean, from tropical North Queensland to the outer islands of Palau in Micronesia.
