Ocypode quadrata Ocypode quadrata

Moved from True Crabs.
Identified by Christopher Boyko. Apparently these don't breed this far north yet.

Moved from Crustaceans.

A juvenile. I found several similar images online, but none identified beyond "crab." See this page for example (scroll down). Maybe an expert will wander by and tell us what it is. :)
