message Well, don't take me wrong but squat lobsters do not swim and are not pelagic (in their larval stages they are but this one is an adult)...

message I don't know what to tell you buddy. Look up pelagic red crabs on Google or tuna crabs and then tell me they don't swim. Little bit of research might have saved us both some trouble.
