Horseshoe Crab Studies

Our wonderful cousins invited us to visit Barnegat Light, New Jersey with them.

Three cheers for the warm Atlantic!

Long Beach Island is a big migration area for horseshoe crabs. We even found a little baby one smaller than my thumbnail. We kept him in a shell for a while, seeing how he burrowed into sand whenever he could. When the boys asked if we could keep him, my answer was: Why would you want to take him away from his natural environment?

Indeed, this place was gorgeous. That little crab was no fool.

But it was this deceased adult horseshoe crab that made for the best photos.
