    Its a girl! 2 pics.

    J/k well sort of. I went to the beach 2 days ago. I spent most of my time in the salt water swamp. Caught a bunch of animals but, I forgot my camera! So here is what I caught.

    1 flat clawed hermit crab
    1 normal hermit crab (can't remember the common name)
    3 green crabs
    3 young crabs I couldn't identify
    1 pencil fish
    1 female fiddler crab
    6-8 male fiddler crabs
    many minnows with black stripes
    some shrimp
    1 HUGE female horseshoe crab

    Here she is! Me and my little cousin with it.


    And the top of its shell.


    Her tail isn't missing, in the top one she was trying to stab me and the second has it under her. If you look into the background you will see a group of people. The aquarium was catching thing to show the people and collecting horseshoe and spider crabs for their empty tanks. I brought her over to show them and they were all talking about how big it is and all and so they call their boss if it would go into any tank they had but, nope she was to BIG! I brought her back to where I found her and let her go. I did start a exploration of the more remote parts. There may be 2 or 3 more pics to come if they are eventually emailed to me like this.

    Horseshoe crabs do not use their telson for defense, ever. It is only there to flip the animal over if they end up on their back somehow.
