Preferably this specie stays at rocky shores and hides in narrow rock gaps. The crab makes use of its claws when disturbed. At night they search for food in form of seaweed and live or dead animals. In order to grow they shed off their shield followed by an increased intake of calcium rich algae to stabilize their carapace.
