The crab named Alexander is an orange Japanese giant spider crab originally from the Sea Life fish holding centre in Weymouth, Dorset, United Kingdom. Alexander was later transferred to the Sea Life Scheveningen.

Alexander is an adult crab with claws over 5' in length. Giant crabs are sluggish, moving slowly. They are usually found down the coast of China, Japan, and Taiwan. Sea Life Scheveningen will offer mussels and squid for Alexander to consume.
