I have seen two crabs, one w/ a big claw and small claw; the other w/ a big paddler and a small paddler- is this do from them losing a limb or something else.
Just been wondering about that; thought somebody might know----Jeff
Yes, from your description, those crabs had lost limbs and were regrowing new ones.
Here's a link that will help explain the regeneration process in detail. http://www.blue-crab.org/autotomy.html
