But the crab has a shell, and can see why the pics were put in here:0)
Perhaps this section should be called "Chelonia" then this mistake might not have happened:0)

Well it is called Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise, which is probably clearer than Chelonia as relatively few people would know what that means, I think pretty much everyone would know what a turtle or tortoise is. It seems that quite a lot of people don't know that crabs belong in the Invertebrates section though, judging by the number that turn up here by mistake.

Nice crab though, and I'll move it to the correct section.

Actually I was not sure were to post it. I was thinking to post it in Invertebrates. But as it most definitely has a shell. I was put in the shell section. Most forums does not have "shell" section. they got Invertebrates and Tortoise, Turtles.
