This small crab was walking along the seashore yesterday. I very rarely see any crabs along our local shoreline here in Turkey and when I do they are usually very small and dark with no obvious markings. So this one stood out from the crowd It was about the size of the palm of my hand and had black and yellow markings with mahogany brown front claws with pincers, and a yellow underside.
