Nature Find

During our weekend in RI, we walked the beach and spotted this Horseshoe Crab.  Unfortunately something got it and the crab washed up on the shore.  My daughter didn't want to get near it, but she was ok for daddy to touch it.

 This is the underside of the crab.  We thought it was alive at first, but down by it's tail is where something got a hold of it.
This is the topside of the crab.  It was amazing to see one intact.  There were a lot of empty horseshoe shells on the sand, but not one like this.

I am glad we were able to experience this creature and also able to see what they look like up close.
Don't you just love unexpected nature finds?
