As a part of the Crustacea family, the two stand out crabs of this High-Quality Giclee Print are the Atelecyclus septemdentatus and the Cancer ruricola. The Atelecyclus septemdentatus is found on the west coast of Europe and Africa, and as its name suggests it has 7 sharp teeth. The Cancer ruricola is part of the Carribean land crab family.
Even if you choose this print for its visual quality only, you will enjoy the rich reds and calming tan as well as the details on the individual crabs. This magnificent illustration is only one of over 500 from the 19th century work of a French naturalist and zoologist baron Georges Cuvier, named “The Animal Kingdom, arranged according to its organization, serving as a foundation for the natural history of animals: and an introduction to comparative anatomy”.
