I was a bit surprised that they came rather "wet". I had not ordered them before and only had handled the dry ones that our biology department had for years. Once they dried out in our green house for a few days, they were fine.
I was moved by a documentary motion film I viewed a few weeks ago, on the Prime Time Amazon films called the "ALIEN CRAB" by Filmrise pictures.

The "ALIEN CRAB" documentary film made me see how important the Horseshoe crab is to the United States.

The one I did have an issue with was replaced or refunded immediately. It did not have a tail. This company is great to work with.
Horseshoe Crab grabs their attention

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.
