More closely related to spiders and scorpions than crabs these ocean dwelling creatures have roamed the seas since the time of the dinosaurs. Today they can be found all over the world but only come close enough to shore certain times a year to reproduce. However timing these events can be hard to predict and it was only be mere chance that the Brave Wilderness team was able to happen upon one of these bizarre arthropods.
