Striped Shore Crab

Pachygrapsus crassipes


Common tidepool crab in Southern California. These guys are tiny and mighty! I witnessed a few crabs being chased off by a smaller one, and one being torn apart for food!! Nature is so awesome! (and extreme.)


Tidepools and shallows of the Pacific ocean. Frequently darts into crevices in the rocks where they make their homes.
