    There are more than 8,000 species of decapods around the world. A decapod is a marine animal that has five pairs of thoracic legs. The term "decapod" comes from the Greek word meaning "10 legs." This classification includes species of crustaceans such as shrimp, crayfish, lobsters, hermit crabs and crabs. Decapods are abundant species that live mostly in warm, shallow tropical waters. Most make their home in saltwater habitats but about 10 percent of decapod species live in freshwater. Source: Britannica.com
