Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It has lengths of 20 cm, maximum total length; between 2 and 9, carapace length (Ref. 4). Taken at depths from 0 to 20 m, in coral or stone reefs with a sandy bottom. It is nocturnal and in the daytime hides in crevices, sometimes in small groups (Ref. 4). Also on rubble (Ref. 97531). Scyllarids are commonly considered to be opportunistic omnivorous (Ref. 106411). Aquarium observations indicate that they may open bivalves (Ref. 102680). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
