Hard domed shell. Many legs.
Moved to the Arthropods category.
Sand Crab or Pacific Mole Crab. See that little bit of orange color on the left upper side, those are eggs. This must be a female. They tunnel just under the sand in the tidal area for food and that is also where they lay their eggs.
This neat critter is a type of crab. They are also called Sand Crabs. Crabs go in the Arthropods section. :-)
