The horseshoe crab is a unique sea animal that looks nothing like a crab. They are brown in color and have a hard shell on top with legs underneath to move them around. I honestly don’t know much about them, so read the link below to find out more.

Usually the horseshoe crabs I come across in the wild are dead. One time my son and I went down to the big Mosquito Lagoon “lake” and found hundreds of dead horseshoe crabs just offshore and along a beach. I’ve read that raccoons will eat them, but I honestly don’t know what killed so many.
