The prettiest and best tasting crabs are the ones you'll find in the brackish waters of the Chesapeake Bay...Yes, I'm talking about the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab.
And yes, I'm biased...but welcome other people's opinions.
ETA: Ummm...aren't they arthropods? There's a fun fact.
Australian fresh water crays or marron are bluish green and taste wonderful!
How do you cook them there?
In Maryland they steam the crabs whole (sometimes with beer) and sprinkle Old Bay seasoning on them. Well, that's if you're eating them whole anyway...Sometimes they make crab cakes out of them, or if the season is right, they deep fry the soft shell crabs and put them on a sandwich....Oh man, I've gotta get back to Baltimore. I haven't had good seafood in years.
Imitating their movements makes for great exercise..
The Crab Walk:
Actually, Spider, many "experts" have rated the taste of the Apalachicola blue crab above the Chesapeake crab. I don't think the water in the Apalach Bay is as polluted.
What else do I know about crabs? How to catch 'em, how to kill 'em before cooking, how to cook 'em, and how to eat 'em! I wrote several hubs about these very topics!
What do I know about lobsters? They taste great!
Omg crabs and lobsters oh this is just too much for me mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....
Crabs and lobsters abound in the nearby river here in our place. They taste good but you have to know your cholesterol level first before you could really enjoy eating them. They're best cooked in very little water and salt.
I only have two words about Crab and Lobster: Yumm Yumm!
I'm confused... This is posted in the Pets & Animals section. Is the OP looking for information about lobsters & crabs as pets? Or did they post in the wrong section and mean to put it under food?
Since everybody else already covered the food part, I guess I'll provide some info about crabs as pets... hermit crabs, to be specific.
Um... Hermit crabs are a pretty popular pet for children and adults. They are pretty easy to care for. It is best to keep them in a bird cage with sand and pebbles at the bottom. You always need to have a few shells of various sizes inside the cage. They molt according to their age. The younger crabs molt a lot more often than the older crabs. They drink water out of a sponge and eat crab cake things you can find at any pet store. They kind of stink and there is a proper way to hold them so to avoid being pinched. Really not good to carry them around by their shells, but that is the only way to pick them up. If you want to actually hold them, you need to keep them on the palm of your hand and keep it stretched tightly. The more contact you have with them, the friendlier they become.
I don't know anything about lobsters as pets. I think there is a cute little green crab that is a good salt water pet though too.

Can you tell a difference in taste between Alaskan King crabs and Chesapeake Bay Blue crabs?
