At the beach a little while ago I came across the shell of an old Horseshoe crab. I suspect its demise was caused by the owner of the foot prints in the sand.
Horseshoe crabs are marine anthropods of the family Limulidae and order Xiphosura or Xiphosurida that live primarily in and around shallow waters on soft sandy or muddy bottoms. If you want to find out more about it you can click here.
