Colourful Costa Rican Crab

Back in 2015, Sylvia and I visited Costa Rica. While relaxing on the beach at Playa Avellanas, this handsome fellow scuttled up to our loungers.

"WHAT IS THAT THING!?" Sylvia shrieked. "GET IT AWAY, AAHHHHH!"

I felt bad laughing, but really, even Sylvia admitted in the moment that this was a very lovely creature. She just doesn't like things that jump, creep, and sneak.

When we were in Jamaica, my wife and I were taking a bus ride on account of a) we had a lot to drink and b) Jamaicans drive on the left side of the road. The bus ahead of ours pulled away and a king crab the size of a dinner platter was revealed. Our driver jumped out of the bus and snatched up the crab before it could find another shelter. "Dinner for tonight," he beamed.
