Male Fiddler Behavior | The Salt Marsh

Kaltura

Male fiddler crabs have one large claw, which can be either their left or right. They wave these large claws at other males to frighten them away from their territory. When they wave the claw, they stretch up on their tiptoes so that they appear bigger. They also wave their claws at females to attract them.
