Guess Who Else Enjoys Eating Crab Legs?

It turns out that a crab does! This morning we watched a blue crab eat a blue crab claw that it had scavenged from the bottom of the salt marsh.

I shot these photos and video looking down and into the silty salt water where the crab was dining on it’s feast. Several small fish also arrived on the scene but the crab kept kicking them away using one of it’s side legs. Watch for that in the lower right corner of the video!
