Sally Lightfoot Crab

One of the colorful species I think of when remembering the Galapagos Islands was the Sally Lightfoot Crabs. The large ones have a bright reddish orange color. The smaller ones are not as bright. They scurry along the edge of the lava rocks feeding and hiding. I was lucky to see a small octopus working its way along the edge of the rocks, just under the water, hunting crab for breakfast. The Smothers Brothers were not right about crabs walking sideways. They seemed to walk any way they wanted to. Here are a few shots.
