edible crab

This is a juvenile, the adults move progressively deeper each year ending up well below low water.

Edible crab

I always find the best way to identify edible crab is the indentations around the shell remind me of a pie crust, therefore it's food.

Remarkable, would never have

Remarkable, would never have thought this small purplish crab would turn into the big edible crabs for the dinner plate. Looking at the seashore opens up all sorts of new possibilities of new things that I'd not spotted before.
