Crab is the animal that most people think of when they think “Crustacean”. Beach goers watch Her walking sideways along the beach looking for food. She entertains them by scuttling about, on all four pairs of her legs, while waving her two front claws in the air.
Living between the land and the water, Crab thrives in the harsh environment of the coastal wetlands. Watch Crab at tidal flats. She scurries here and there looking for food. As the clean-up crew for the beach, Crab eats sea worms, dead fish, and algae. Many Crabs mean a healthy marsh.
Crab entering your life can be either a blessing or a warning. Crab empowers you to live in less than optimal conditions. Crab also may be warning you that you are eating too much garbage.
