In Peninsular Malaysia, mangrove crab fetches high commercial value and is a sought after seafood. This rare species contributes towards balancing the ecosystem through its daily activities such as burrowing and consuming leaf litter. Through burrowing, mangrove crab helps to aerate sediment through consuming leaf litter; and it also helps to retain much of the energy in the forest. The roles of this unique creature may be akin to an engineer of the forest.
