Land Crab

land crab
A couple of days ago I was thinking about the unusual land crabs that appear this time of year. Not soon after projecting the thoughts did this one appear and try to come in the house. Very carefully, Spencer, our big dog, tried to usher it outside, but I did a more effective job with the broom.

Hi there! I think they eat vegetation and insects out of water in streams and pools. We currently have one that lives underneath a drainage tube. He seems happy there.
