Crab Spiders of the family Thomisidae are not crabs, but rather spiders; they are so-called because they move sideways like crabs. These spiders are mostly slow-moving and prefer to stay hidden and ambush preys rather than hunting them down.
A large number of Crab Spiders possess well-developed front legs i.e. the first two pairs for effective handling of prey as well as threat display.
