Crab dance

Nightly, my lone emerald crab will walk along the bottom of the glass walls on two legs with its claws up, like it's doing a dance. I attached a picture of what it looks like. Anyone know why it does this??

I dont have a clue. I think crabs will do some type of dance as a mating ritual. Maybe it ain`t your lone emerald crab. Maybe others know.

Mine does that, too. It almost seems like it is checking the glass for an escape route.
