Cryptic Crab

Image #220920

A crab forages along the rocks at Ft. Pierce Inlet. Still coming up short on identifying this crab. Some leads but they all end up being crabs that are not native to Florida. Otherwise, it was suggested this was a Mangrove Root Crab, but, if so, it is far out of its expected habitat. Click for a view of a similar crab at Port Canaveral.
