Abstract: Few studies have been conducted in the field or in the laboratory regarding the behavior of Aratus pisonii, an integral member of the mangrove community. This crab inhabits Rhizophora mangle, Avicennia germinans, and Laguncularia racemosa, the red, white and black mangroves of Southern Florida. For this study, an extensive ethogram was established in the field and a behavioral time budget was ascertained. A pilot study combining both field and laboratory observations revealed the crabs' behavioral responses to two dimensional and three dimensional models of their predators. Predator models include; the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, the yellow crowned night heron and the snowy egret. Models were sessile in the field and two were presented per trial. In the lab, models of rats, fish, crabs and birds were manipulated to mimic the natural behaviors of predators. Habituation trials and novel stimulus trials were also run. Aratus responded to all models in the field and in the lab.
