Calico Crabs (Hepatus epheliticus) have predominantly white shells, but they are decorated with large purple or pinkish spots on their carapace, and stripes on their legs. These are shame-face type crabs, with rounded shells and specialized claws that can from a shield over the crab's face.

These are unique crabs, and they grow to about 4 inches wide. They spend a good majority of their time buried in the sand bed, and they should be supplied with a bed at least 2-3 inches deep. They merge at night to scavenge for food. These crabs should not be trusted with delicate corals or inverts, but should not harm fish.
