Natural sundial? This horseshoe crab got stranded on a beach. May is their spawning season. Sometimes as the tide goes out, the horseshoe crabs get stranded. If they got turned over on their back, they’re often too weak to flip back over and scurry back into the water. Spawning is tiring work.
Don’t worry – I helped him back into the water.
If you see a stranded horseshoe crab, turn it over on it’s on its legs. Never pick one up by the tail – always by the sides of the shell. If you can, help them back into the water.
Be kind to other creatures.
