Calappa granulata (Linnaeus, 1758)
Calappa granulata , commonly known as Red-spotted Shamecrab can reach a length of 8-9 cm and a width of 11-12 cm (carapace). The colour is rose or yellowish. It feeds on mollusks. The specially formed forceps are well adapted to pick snails apart and strong enough to crack their shells.
