Horseshoe crabs are such interesting creatures. They have a large outer shell that protects their body and makes them more maneuverable in the water. The legs and claws that we commonly see on other crabs are hidden under this large shell. But, don’t be fooled, those hidden claws can pinch just as hard as the other crabs do.
This sealife image is on the smaller side but that should just make it easier to add this little horseshoe crab image to a larger work.
