Sally Lightfoot Crab 2

Several of the Sally Lightfoot Crabs we saw had brilliant blue on the underside. The color variations are thought to be associated with the mating season.

This photo also reveals much brighter reds in the claws.

One of this animal’s survival methods is the ability to regenerate legs and claws. This ability comes in handy if the crab is snatched by a leg and the leg comes off. The crab gets a chance to escape, and eventually, a new leg grows.
