ABSTRACT Residents of Malabuyoc on the west coast of Cebu in the Philippines use a bamboo tube trap for capturing the edible land crab Cardisoma carnifex. Traps are inserted into the mouths of occupied burrows where crabs are caught alive and unharmed as they emerge for nocturnal foraging. The technique of tube-trapping might prove useful in the scientific study of Cardisoma and other burrowing crabs and in selective harvesting of animals for consumption.
