A colourful species from Indonesia. Very docile species and happy to be held. Do best in small groups of 2-3. This species is sometimes known as the Chameleon crab as it can change colour depending on its mood.
Keep on a sandy soil mix of at least a few inches to allow for burrowing. A water bowl that they can submerge in is all they need as they are mostly land based.
Can reach up to around 3-4 inches in size and live for 2-3 years
