Of the 12 zodiac signs, which one is symbolized by the creature with the most legs?
- Cancer, the crab:In astrology, Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. Its representation as a crab is related to the crab in Greek mythology that pinched Heracles while he was fighting the Lernaean hydra. Crushed by Heracles, the crab was rewarded by Heracles’ enemy, Hera, by being placed in the heavens. Crabs belong to the Decapoda order, which literally means “ten-footed.” The 10 legs of all decapods are located in bilateral symmetry, with five on each side. The fact that crabs have ten legs distinguishes them from scorpions, which have only eight legs and belong to the order Scorpiones.
