The golden-eyed and jade-faced vampire crab (Geosesarma dennerle var. White Leg) is a small, colorful, semi-terrestrial species native to the Indonesian island of Java. It inhabits forested areas near streams, rivers and ponds. It spends most of its time on land, but is also often submerged in fresh water, including when molting.

The golden-eyed jade-faced vampire crab, like most crabs, is an omnivorous scavenger and sometimes an opportunistic hunter. It feeds on filamentous algae and detritus in amphibious aquariums and also readily accepts high-quality dry food rich in plant matter. Fresh and dried vegetables are also an excellent food source, with insects, worms and other invertebrates on its food list.

In nature, the golden-eyed and jade-faced vampire crab lives in fallen leaves and vegetation. In amphibious tanks it needs plenty of land area. It doesn't usually eat healthy plants, but it usually helps keep them clean and may consume dead leaves. Like most crabs, it needs adequate cover, especially when molting, so a lot of decoration is required.

1. Female crabs are darker in color than male crabs and have smaller pincers.

2. Crabs will break their legs to survive when they are nervous, which is normal. Broken limbs will respawn after shedding.

3. The sub-adults are very active although they are lighter in color. Generally, it becomes an adult after 1-2 times of shelling.

Note: In case of stock shortage, we have the opportunity to sell crabs with one broken leg but two intact claws, please understand.
