Weekly Photo – Sally Lightfoot Crab in the Shadows

Sally Lightfoot Crabs are a daily feature in the Galapagos. If you are near the coast, you should see them – probably hundreds of them. They move differently than crabs we are used to in Canada. Maybe the cold water affects them differently but crabs in Canada are very slow compared to these crabs in the Galapagos.

This picture was taken at the Red Mangrove Aventura Lodge on Santa Cruz Island. This crab was  just sitting there – and the sun made for some dramatic shadows.

Have you seen them before?
