Found a blue crab walking home with my daughter from the bus stop. In the middle of town, Lafayette LA.

They live in some of the deeper suburban ditches here, in front of the homes. Along with ditch crawdads and various frog/toad species, see the tadpoles.

I found this crab under the rocks at the Pacific Coast of California. It seems that for a instance his original color is purple but when I saw it closer it has his green color too. But his tongs are purple as well as his abdomen.
