Can anyone recommend a good picture or habitate book on Crabs.. I have one of those books down the Cape on sea creatures, the publisher of the bird, trees , and mineral type guide a field guide... what I am looking for is one which will give me a good picture of crabs in their natural habitats, particularly tropical , or worldwide.. I hope the source gives a write up about each specie... thanks.

John, I have several handbooks that contain crab profiles and photos for both northern or southern waters as well as the Pacific. I think I included them in the bibliography of BfFP which I believe you have. If they are not there, email me and I'll send you the titles. If I remember it correctly, one of the best was a Peterson Guide for the Caribbean. Author might be Kaplan.
