Alright, got some more crab pictures. he he. ))) These time it's the infamous mangrove tree crabs!!!
These little guys were sitting not on trees, but on wooden poles. I had to be very careful not to spook them. They did not seem to want to go in the water, just moved around the wooden pole. Kind of neat. The scientific names for them is Aratus pisonii. They belong to Sesarmidae family of crabs. They occure anywhere from Southern Florida to Northern Brazil.
Their little home: West Lake Park, Hollywood Florida
