Curious crab

Curious crab
A number of these strange crabs with only one pincer were wandering about in the sand on the riverbank near Assolna in Goa (India). But, what is this creature precisely???

It's a male fiddler crab - Uca annulipes - and actually has two claws, the other, much smaller, will grow if the large one is lost.

The only purpose of the large claw is to attract females...
