Sally Lightfoot Crab - Galápagos Islands

Native to the Galápagos Islands, this unmistakable crab, Grapsus grapsus, is brilliantly red and orange with pale-blue undersides with juveniles being much darker. Their common name derives from their amazing ability to skip across pools of water as they move through the rocky intertidal zone where they scavenge and hunt. Their food is algae, detritus, other crustaceans and even their own species. They can be spotted picking dead skin and parasites from marine iguanas.
