Summary1.Mictyris platycheles, the soldier crab, walks predominantly forward (Fig. 2). Two-thirds of the crabs studied used all 10 legs in walking; the remainder held up the chelae and walked with 8 legs.2.The soldier crab is egg-shaped in contrast to laterally elongated sideways-walking crabs. Its joints which allow anterior-posterior leg movement describe larger angles than in sideways-walking crabs of a similar size, while its joints which permit lateral movement describe smaller angles (Fig… Expand
