Here are four crabs from the spot-the-crabs-post (circled). As I said, I wasn’t sure where they all were. I’m not entirely confident of the one in the middle on the left…
And there are probably more! Here’s a very confident set of spottings from reader Heather Hastie on the comments of the original post, who also reveals the source of her skills in an idyllic childhood…
1, 2, 3. One top left corner, one just below it, one between them but more to right (front pincers and front of body only peeking out).
4. Centre right. (This is the easiest to see.)
5,6, 7. There are three on same level as the one above on the other side of the tank, but all are mostly between the rocks with just some legs and partial body visible.
8. Bottom left.
I found two more at one point, but I can’t find them again to describe. (Perhaps they moved!:-)) Blame a childhood at the beach; I loved searching the rock pools.
