The horseshoe crabs are out in vast numbers across the beaches of Massachusetts this week!! They are looking to breed with each other and bite and sting people so watch where you step!!! (Just kidding about the latter). Here is a great big one I saw on the shores of Hewitts Cove over the weekend:
Originally evolved from stingrays (one can see the resemblance) this creepy creatures crawl along the bottom of the ocean, most often in shallow water. They tend to be not quite as aggressive as some of the other types of crabs were have in this area, such as this monster crab that brutally attacked me last summer.
