Rock Crab

Romaleon antennarium (formerly Cancer antennarius)


Commonly known as the Pacific, Brown or California rock crab, is a crab of the genus Romaleon found on the western coast of North America.


Pacific Ocean, Pebble Beach, California


Edible. I advise looking up a video on how to most humanly kill them and cook them.
