I have started this article as I can find no reference to carrier crabs on Wikipedia. Carrier crabs and their symbiotic relationship with sea urchins were the subject of an episode of the popular BBC TV series Octonauts so this should have generated some interest in this crab family. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find out much about them, as there is scant info on them online other than some photos and videos and a brief entry for one species at sealifebase.org, so please help if you know anything about them.
