who lives in a mangrove above the sea?


The mangrove tree crab only ventures to the briny mudflats at low tide for noms. Not to be confused with, I kid you not, the similar looking mangrove root crab. This tiny friend has tiny pointy feet turning him into an expert twig climber. I met this crustacean on Sanibel Island Florida in 2019. Aratus pisonii
