con hoc tro - vietnam cu lao colorful one big arm crab

I don’t know for sure what’s the exact name of this crab – But I remember finding it during the summer time, it came out of the creek bank mud, a lot of them too crawling around, very colorful, beautiful – It was said that the male is bigger than the female, it has one big arm and the other arm is very small. It eats mud and it’s not year round crab, it cannot be eaten, and very hard to catch, I remember catching one but it died pretty quick or run away. This crab I call it “con hoc tro” translate in English “student crab” lol no idea. More pictures below.
