In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.

Blue Swimmer Crab
Blue Swimmer crabs are also known as Sand Crabs and have a carapace up to about 200mm wide. Males are typically blue like the one illustrated, whereas females are much browner and often have red-tipped front claws. The back pair of legs are paddle-shaped and work like oars, making them efficient swimmers.
They live within intertidal areas of sheltered bays and inlets. Spending most of their time beneath sand or mud, they emerge at high tide to feed on fish, molluscs and other animal matter.
Blue Swimmers are widely distributed throughout Australian waters as well as the West Pacific, Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean.
