Husbandry

Lophozozymus pictor (Fabricius, 1798)

Lophozozymus pictor is known to be one of the most poisonous crabs in the world. There are several documented deaths caused by eating this crab. Its neurotoxin does not get denatured by heat even when cooked. It acquires the poisonous neurotoxin from its food, including a poisonous sea cucumber. Inhabits littoral and sublittoral areas with rocky and coral rubble substrates, and coral reefs.
