What is the largest crustation?



  1. 0 Votes

    The world’s largest crustacean is the Giant Spider Crab (Macrocheira kaempheri).  Its natural habitat is in Japan at a depth of about 1,200 feet. It gets its name from its likeness to a spider, and its claws span a distance of up to 13 feet and weighs up to 44 pounds.  It is certainly the largest in size, but if you are looking for weight, the American lobster (Homarus americanus) weighs slightly more than it at up to 48 pounds, but only is 3.9 feet long.
