Adaptations the Moreton Bay Bug (thenus orientalis) has taken into account include mainly its muscular tail along with its sandy habitat.  This organism primarily swims using its muscular tail and swims backwards.  Research doesn't inform me on exactly how the know where they're going when they are swimming but the tail most likely includes or has some good sensory nerves.  When not swimming, they crawl along the bottom of the coasts where they are inhabited searching for food or a mate, otherwise buried.  Thenus orientalis's body composition also has some major adaptations such as: compression of the body, shorter antennae, body spines, a lateral carapace expansion (longer body).  All these developments in the body of thenus orientalis helps it cover large distances when swimming and help the able to look for food making this species of lobster an excellent swimmer.
