When I went yabbying with hubby, I caught a couple of tadpoles and I accidently caught a baby yabby. He's only 2cm long and I noticed he is missing one of his claw arms. Can these arms grow back? :huh:

Erm heres what i found:

If a crustacean loses a limb (claw, walking leg or antenna) it will grow back, starting at the next moult. However, unless the lost part is small, total regeneration is not immediate and usually three or four moults are needed to restore the limb completely.
