it occurs even inside houses..
this female crab is full of eggs... the eggs can be seen on its belly...
Crabs had different colours in different atmospheres..I find similar shape. Let's find similar again. Actually its from Genus of Land crabs. Others do not match.
@ashish it is not rotunda. it has more pointed corners not rounded like rotunda and the color of legs seems different..
Its very much like Discoplax rotunda
Ashish, possibly one of the mangrove crab families? I don't even know if there are mangroves in India.
Wow interesting.. now..!!
