Im 6 months late but oh well here goes Yeah crabs can lose limbs just like any animal but fortunately for them crabs can regenerate lost limbs (i know they can regrow legs but i am not sure about claws) Just like any arthropod, crabs have a hard exoskeleton, and they are able to grow as they age by molting their skeleton after growing a new, soft skeleton underneath. The new skeleton will harden but not before it expands to fit the size of the crab's grown innards. I'm not 100% sure how it works but each time that a crab molts, it can regrow one segment of a severed leg. How often a crab molts would depend on species but i'm reasonably sure all crab species's legs have only 3 segments so however long 3 molts would take is the amount of time for the crab to get it's missing leg back.

1:47 "While no conclusions can be drawn from this encounter, it was something cool that a dumb crab did with bubbles and we all laughed and went back to doing science"
