Why DO crabs walk side ways ? I can think of a lot of guesses but what is the actual reason? Or do they just walk side ways?
the question we must ask is does it really matter? although can you imagine if humans did so?
it's more the question, why do we walk forward?!!
i think they just like walking sideways :L weird creatures <3
to walk in the same direction of the ocean currents
well what i wna no is how many times are you gona kill me?
They haven't heard your amazing voice yet :>)
omg dont get me started on crabs.. but i saw u met rachel furner omgggggggggg xx
omg LOL you're so amazingly random, google it? ;) xx
maybe because they wont trip like we do when we walk forwards! ;P
Because of their legs, they have so many they would end up tripping over them, much easier to walk sideways!!!
I asked someone this the other day and they just looked at me like 'what'. I'm so glad you wonder the same :')
I actually love you because of that last tweet. Amazing.
that Diana I would like to know as well, one of the great mysteries of the world
they just like a bit of banter!
They DONT walk sideways - theres a crab place and they gave me a crap and i brought it to the beach - it went forwards!
Apparently its cos thats how their legs bend and its easier for them to get into small places etc. lol xx
They don't. It's just because their heads are on sideways.
will be good t see you in dec with the JLS boys :) hopefully meet ya all :) xx
they physically can't walk forwards or backwards
love ur tweets diana, retweet the answer tho sweetie xxx
oh D ,you make me laugh why are you tweeting about crabs at 11oclock! Haha <3
she shud fukin reply! haha, why do i even follow her!
irrelevant, but Llamas cannot reverse :]
My house :)
Its the only way their legs bend! Xx
does a good crab dance lol xxx
lol i think they just walk sideways! no reason really.
I thinks it's been scientifically proven that they do it just cuz it looks cool!!
lol that was a random tweet :P i dont have a clue, but im scared of them :| haha xx
it's coz of the way there legs bend, they cant walk forwards only sideways, and it helps them hide in smal spaces/holes :P
in your fridge.
it's so birds get confused when they try and eat them. Man i'm a coolkid for knowing that! Sundaaay <3
simply because thats the way there legs bend helps them hide in gaps :-)x
think its something to do with their skeletal structure and the way plates interlock but don't twist so they can't move forward
they're actually walking forwards but you keep looking at them side on. ;0)
that's the way they can see. Its just the way it is x
because of the articulation of the legs... apparently.
I think its because their legs are too small for their body so they'd fall over otherwise, or something to do with not getting
don't they just need 2 pee so bad they try and hold it in and just end up walking that way
you blates just googled that in the hope of getting a reply from Vickers ;)
its cuz of the joints in their legs! It helps them squeeze into holes to hide from things tha wana eat them! y do I kno lol :)x
what a random question...... Do you have an answer?
cause walking sideways is more fun than walking normally :')
theyr just made to walk like this! if they cud walk like us theyd have done it ages agooo.
I don't know but...a man who walks through airport doors sideways is going to Bangkok.
North west London
that's who America invented side walks for!! (honestly I crack my self up)
I think its to do with the way their eyes are positioned, they can't see forwards and so walk sideways.......I think :s
one crab to the left one to the right and clap those claws LOL x
you should film yourself doing the crab dance and put it on youtube. you would get 1 million hits x
cause of how they're legs are positioned, they physically cant walk forwards....i think thats why anyway!
it's just the way their joints work, but not all crabs walk sideways. spider crabs can walk in all directions. they are freaky!
con if only herd still played for city he'd have been in nandos tonight with the others & it would have been my chance! haha xx
haha i thought exactly that when you tweeted earlier hahaha! xx
evolution has meant that their legs can't move forwards or backward
you were incredible at peterborough , brought a tear to my eye .. xx
none of the current players even match him so it was a let down..i dont even dare look at his fb profile :$ xx
should have asked them for his mobile number! Missed opportunity grace ;) xx
excuse me you dont know me but i want your friend (who isn't here)'s number, thanksss seee ya! would it have worked? ;) xx
If you did it like that, and i was them, i'd have given you the number :) xx
crabs got piles- too sore to walk properly
So they can keep their eyes and their pincers facing the threat while still running away.
crabs walk that way because their legs are made to bend under their bodies so they can't rotate them to walk forwards.
Hiya, ive always wondered that about crabs too, did anyone tell you the reason? x
