Horseshoe Crab

The horseshoe crab has a hard exoskeleton and 10 legs, which it uses for walking along the seafloor. The Horseshoe Crab has been around for more than 300 million years, making them even older than dinosaurs. They look prehistoric and are actually closely related to scorpions and spiders.

Speckled Crab

The Speckled Crab has a very aggressive temperament and vicious pincers. It burrows down into shifting sands where its colors allow it to camouflage perfectly with its surroundings waiting to ambush its prey.
