Horseshoe Crab grabs their attention
Posted by Dan Shafer on May 8th 2018
I purchased this horseshoe crab after a student used the organism in a presentation on evolution and animal behavior. Since I teach in a landlocked state, where most of my students have never seen a horseshoe crab in the wild (or the ocean for that matter), I felt that bringing a specimen into the classroom would be a great way to connect.
The horseshoe crab that I received was LARGER than expected, very well preserved, great shape and I got the response I was hoping for. They were excited to see a "REAL" example of a "living fossil" and it helped to stimulate additional discussion in my biology classes.
Definitely would buy again

It was a good size, beautiful colors and was preserved amazingly.
