Japanese Spider Crab

Macrocheira kaempferi

With the monstrous appearance, they do look scary
But are very docile, quite the contrary

Exoskeleton is pale to bright red
Once in a while, the armour is shed

Wading to the shallow waters, to lay eggs
Balancing on 8 long dangly legs

    The creature looks quite scary. Your poem perfectly describes the basic characterstics of the spider. Good!
