A mystery solved

Many thanks to Ian and Chris in the Glaucous Yahoo Group for letting the safari know that this is a Long Clawed Porcelain Crab. As far as I am aware this is probably the first record for Blackpool. Congratulations to the finder - she knows who she is!. If anyone knows otherwise please let me know.
I have learnt that the Porcelain Crabs have three pairs of legs instead of the usual four, you can see this (just) in the picture. They are small usually only 1 - 2cm across when adult, this one is smaller than that and must still be a juvenile.

Where to next? Could be anywhere you'll have to wait and see.

In the meantime please let us know what you have found in your 'outback'.
