Leptuca pugilator, 24 May 2019

Leptuca pugilator, the Atlantic sand fiddler crab;
Brevard county, Florida (24 May 2019).

I do adore the diminutive and shy Atlantic sand fiddler crab. These tiny crabs can be seen en masse trolling about the muddy banks of our salt marshes. When you see a muddy “beach” move around, odds are you’re looking at a horde of tiny fiddler crabs heading back to the burrows.
