Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I'm sorry, I did not know where to put it, so I put it to other. I'm going to be more conscious next time.

We found it on our first visit to the beach in Hyannis after the storm.

Hi Sony and Welcome to Project Noah! Cool find. Horseshoe Crabs are amazing ancient creatures. They belong in the Arthropods section, though (I moved it for you). I would love to know a bit more about where you found this organism.

If you haven't done so already, it would be helpful for you to read through the FAQ page for pointers and guidelines for submitting spottings:

If you have questions you can visit the chats or email support. I hope you enjoy it here!
