Abstract: Data are presented on the rate of locomotion of Pagurus granosimanus and Pagurus samuelis at different times of the day and night. There appears to be general tendency for these crabs to slow down at night, but there is an unusual increase in the speed with which the crabs move at 2200. More experiments under controlled conditions are needed.
