Hilton Head ~ Horseshoe Crabs: A Living Fossil

Event Details

Horseshoe Crabs: A Living Fossil  
With its tough, helmet-like body and long, pointed tail, the horseshoe crab is one of the most intriguing and misunderstood marine invertebrates found in our marine waters. Dive in with us as we explore the horseshoe crab and investigate the life cycle and adaptations of this living fossil. Take a closer look at some live horseshoe crabs, feel their tough exoskeleton, and watch them chew their dinner with their legs! Participants will decorate a shadow box and receive a horseshoe crab molt to display and remember the importance of these fascinating creatures.
