The Most Beautiful Crab

A crab that looks like a pointillist painting? While cleaning aquariums, my weekly volunteer work at the PT Marine Science Center, I got to photograph this amazing crab as the staff moved it from one tank to another. The Puget Sound King Crab is a rare and protected species that can occasionally be seen at low tide, though I've never found one. I have loved the Heart Crabs, Umbrella Crabs, Kelp Crabs, and others scampering around the local beaches, but the Puget Sound King Crab is the most beautiful one I've ever seen.
