These small crabs are about the size of a man’s fist. They are a deep reddish color, tapering to yellow on the underbelly. The fire crab’s heat extends roughly 3 to 5 ft.

Fire crabs are omnivorous; they feed on other animals and any plant life that survives the fire crabs native environment. The fire crabs may survive temperatures lower than 100 degrees for 1 hour per point of Constitution, or run the risk of freezing.

Significantly larger than their cousins, the medium fire crab is a monstrosity slightly larger than a dog. The pincers, if they could extend fully (the joints of a fire crab almost turn in on themselves), would reach some 10 ft. or more.

The coloration of a medium fire crab varies from a bright red to nearly maroon in older specimens.

Fire crabs are omnivorous; they feed on other animals and any plant life that survives the fire crabs native environment. The fire crabs may survive temperatures lower than 100 degrees for 1 hour per point of Constitution, or run the risk of freezing.
