A Blotched Swimming Crab (Portunus spinimanus) on the side of some reef debris 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.
