We decided to close for a few days for security reasons in order to avoid contacts with customers, suppliers, couriers etc. to protect us and everyone because we believe it is time to give priority to health rather than economic reasons. We feel as soon as possible when all this has passed thanks to te commitment and sacrifice of everyone.
Every order confirmed before the closing date and undispatched because awaiting payment, will be kept in suspense until the opening date of our office.
You cannot do any new purchases in this moment, because out of order. However, you can add the products you look at on your Wish List to buy them later.
Please don’t send us orders by e-mail, thank you.
 Sorry for eventually inconveniences and...everything will be fine :-)

Description

Origin : Indian Ocean (Madagascar)


horseshoe crab (sea arachnid), cm 17-22, tail included.
 
The Horseshoe crab or royal crab, are indeed Arthropods Chelicerata, unique survivors of Merostomata, which had in the Paleozoic, with their representatives Gigantostracs (Euripterids or scorpions sea) a huge evolutionary success. Despite its common name in English ( "horseshoe crab"), arising from the particular shape and looking armored body, this animal is more closely related to spiders and scorpions that with the class of crustaceans.
There are still only four species belonging to the family Limulidae, and are the Limulus polyphemus, (previously classified as Limulus cyclops, Xiphosura American, Polyphemus occidentalis), widespread on the east coast of North America, from Maine to southern Florida, and in the Gulf of Mexico to the Yucatan peninsula, the Japanese horseshoe crab (Tachypleus gigas), common in the Seto Inland Sea, and two species (Tachypleus tridentatus and Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda) located on the east coast of India.
