Tuesday Crustie: What young Darwin would have seen

Grapsus grapsus, better known as the Sally Lightfoot crab, taken on Floreana island, Galápagos.

Charles Darwin collected this species on his voyage on the H.M.S. Beagle.

Pharygula has the Friday Cephalopod, Why Evolution Is True has the Caturday Felid. There are more crustaceans than either of those, so I can keep this going longer than they can. ;)
