Do crabs take a long time to reach sexual maturity?

    This is a difficult question to answer for two reasons. First of all, different crab species have different timelines for their life cycles. Secondly, a “long time” is a pretty vague term and it is unclear exactly what constitutes a long time (two years or twenty years?). In any case, my instinct is that crabs do not take a long time to reach sexual maturity, at least relative to humans which take between thirteen and sixteen years. Blue crabs for example, only take two years to reach sexual maturity and mate in the summer.
