Some Special Crab Observations

It's exciting to see so many new crab species form part of this project, "Crabs of the World." We now have 1255 species, up 56 since my post just three months ago. I feel compelled to share some of the highlights, extraordinary crabs photographed expertly by a few of our 424 members:
