Giraffe Crab AKA Hepatus EpheliticusBeach Adventures

Has anyone else ever seen this type of crab before on the Outer Banks?  As I was exploring the beaches this weekend with the pups, I came across three of these "giraffe crabs," proper name is "Hepatus Epheliticus."  I was so intrigued by their markings!  A little giraffe crab :) Giraffe Crab   Check out more beach adventures here :) xo, Caroline
