Carleton’s family lives right near the shore on the Long Island Sound, and this morning we went critter scavenging on the beach.
A little crab
A skull thing, any ideas on what it is from?
The shell of a little horseshoe crab
A fish vertebrae
And our biggest find, a huge horseshoe crab that had washed up in a bed of seaweed. It was pretty fresh, but most of its innards were missing, so we decided to take it home with us to clean it. Soon I will have the shell all nice and clean for display (or perhaps to make into an awesome helment ¬_¬ )
