[Extract] The crustacean order Decapoda is characterised by having five pairs of legs, as its name describes. The pairs of legs of a decapod often vary in form and function from anterior to posterior, with the anterior legs typically being more involved in feeding. Often one or more pairs of legs have chelae: pincer-like structures at the appendage tip that are formed by the terminal segment articulating with a projecting 'finger' from the second last segment (Fig. 22.1).
