Wow I never seen one like that before!
Sanibel is the only place I’ve seen them, too, Tania. This is the first one I’ve found with the crab still in the shell. Usually I just see the top shell with no animal. I was surprised to see that the legs of the crab were spotted too! :)Karen
Wow, Karen that is one amazing find. The textures on this crab are beautiful. Never seen anything like this before . Instand fav4me!
Thanks, Esther, for both the kind words and for the fav! Isn’t that why we love this group….you just never know what you might find, lol!!! :)Karen
In all the aquariums (aquaria?) I have been to around the world. I have never seen anything like this! Great that you found it! I think, as unusually cool as this is, I might still freak if I saw it in real life :-P
I’ve never seen them anywhere else either, ellis, but I don’t know how common they are. I usually only see the top shell after the crab has been eaten, so I was excited to see this one intact. They are not very big, so I doubt it would really scare you though, lol! Thanks so much! :)Karen
Much appreciated, foppe!! :)Karen
great capture Karen, are you here on Sanibel ? Liz(noffi) and Gina, and I were there yesterday
Eleven days and counting, Kathy, lol!! Our daughter is flying out today to spend a week there with family and then she’ll come back and we’ll fly down. Someone has to look after Luci, lol!! It’s 21 degrees here so I CAN’T WAIT to get down there! Thanks so much, Kathy! :)Karen

You and me both, hon, lol! Thanks so much, Cindy…:)Karen
