Phylum Arthropoda, subphylum Crustacea (lobsters, shrimps, crabs, barnacles, mantis shrimp, horseshoe crab, hermit crabs)
Stenorhynchus seticornis

The arrow crab has a distinctive body shape that is impossible to mistake. A long pointed rostrum adorns a triangular body. Six long spindly legs extend out from the body. Two blue-tipped pincers capture food and bring it to the mouth at the base of the rostrum. Arrow crabs are widespread throughout the Caribbean, inhabiting reefs where they can be found both in the daytime and at night.
