By the end of the century, chimney crabs will have grown to be one of Australia’s biggest species, with populations at least as big as the Australian crocodiles.
It has been estimated that over 20,000 species are now known to exist in Australia, but only about a dozen are native to the Great Barrier Reef.
This includes the crayfishes and crayman crustaceans, as well as other species that were previously thought to be extinct.
Chimney crabs are known to have developed into a diverse group, with many of the species being introduced to Australia from New Zealand and parts of the Caribbean.
The native Australian crayfordish crayflies are one of the most common crayclaws to appear in the Australian coral reef, with an estimated 2,000 individuals in the Great Australian Bight alone.
The crayflake has an incredibly strong jaw, with a broad, thin, sharp tip that can be used to crack open a crab shell.
The crab then gets sucked into a hole that is a chamber deep within the coral.
When the shell is opened, it exposes an internal chamber filled with tiny crustacean cells.
These are then fed into a filter which breaks the shell open.
These cells then form the chirality of the crays shell.
Once the shell has been opened and the cells feed into the filter, they can be sucked back into the chamber where the shell was originally.
The resulting cavity can then be opened, allowing the crayed-out crab to swim through, which is where it finds a mate.
The male crabs then have a mating feast, which allows them to lay eggs in the newly opened chamber.
The eggs are then incubated for up to a year.
After hatch, the eggs are released and then the adult crabs move on to their next stage of development.
The juvenile female crayfilts can be up to 10mm long, and have a distinctive black band on the back of their abdomen.
The adult male crayfilets have an elongated, yellowish shell that is covered in bright green spots, which are believed to help them navigate in the reef.
It has long been thought that the males were the only species of cray in the world to have evolved this distinctive colouration, but research has shown that they have actually adapted this colouration to help attract mates.
It is thought that they also help them defend themselves against other species of crabs, as the colouration allows them a more conspicuous habitat.
Chimeras are considered a particularly important food source in the aquarium, and there is even a theory that the adults in the tank were originally designed to mate with the females.
The species is also important to the reef because it is a keystone species in the ecosystem, and their habitat allows them time to breed and lay eggs.
Crayfish are also an important part of the coral reef ecosystem, having been used as aquarium food for millions of years.
The Australian government is now looking at the idea of bringing back the Australian crays as an endangered species.
