A Blotched Swimming Crab (Portunus spinimanus) out in the open on the ocean floor at the Blue Heron Bridge shore dive in West Palm Beach. These small, locally common crabs normally hide under crevices - this one is cleaning out a crevice to use. Note the back legs which have adapted into swimming paddles used to propel the crab when needed.
