The following is a list of crustaceans living on Skull Island in the continuity of the 2005 film King Kong by Peter Jackson.


Bone-house.png Osteodomus were a species of four to eight inch long hermit crabs that were too large for conventional shells, leading them to utilize any sort of shelter they could find, most often, hollow bones such as seal skulls. Its name refers to this, as it means "bone-house".
Blue-black-shield.png Lividuscutus were herbivorous lobsters with dark blue shells, delicate claws, and remarkably strong legs, which they used to gather algae from the rocks in the splash zones of the Island's coast.
Sheild-crab.png Scutucaris were flat, Scyllaridae lobsters with a nearly two-dimensional body that allowed them to slip between rocks to avoid octopuses and other predators. Being omnivorous, the Scutucaris scavenged the crevaces of the coastal rocks for any food that other crabs could not access, and they used their sharp claws to cut shellfish meat out of their shells.
Main article: Cunaepraedator.
Cunaepraedator were a species of four pincer bearing scavengers that lived on Skull Island's coast.
Cutey.png Cutiscidis were one-to-four-inch parasitic crabs that bore into the skin of an organism and fed from the wound they created. Their carapace was scab-like in appearance, and they only ever detached from their hosts to breed in the waterways, after which they would seek another host.
Unclean-crab.png Impurucaris were a small carrion-eating crab of Skull Island's swampland that had paddle-appendages. It was not a very adept swimmer.
Squalor-limpet.png Incultulepas were a species of limpet that had bone-softening saliva, which aided it in eating the carrion left behind by larger predators.
Corpse-crab.png Funnucaris were eight-inch long crabs with strong, sharp pincers that allowed them to scrape and cut off pieces of meat clinging to skeletons.

Main article: Deplector.
Deplector were a species of four-to-eight-foot-long land crabs that lived in the cracks and crevices of Skull Island. Females laid hundreds of eggs at a time, and they all left into the chasm after hatching. Male Deplectors are noticeably dwarfed by females, and never leave their larval stage. Instead they inhabit a female's cave and fertilize their eggs.
Abyscid.png Abyscidis were one-to-two foot long Crustaceans that lived in the deep crevices of Skull Island. They typically ate dead or dying prey, and lived in small colonies in the slimy depths of the chasm. Nymph stage Abyscidis navigated the mud to locate new caves and crevices to create new colonies.
