Florida Is Looking For People To Watch Crabs Have Sex


If you enjoy being a voyeur and would like to watch horseshoe crabs have sex, have we got a job for you.

The Florida State Wildlife Service is asking for the publics’ help in locating and reporting any mating horseshoe crabs so it can track these primitive but important creatures. Horseshoe crabs aren’t actually crabs, they are closely related to spiders and scorpions. They are also ancient survivors from the period before the dinosaurs and have declined in the past few decades from the loss of coastal habitat to construction.

Horseshoe crab eggs are an important food for migrating birds. The adult crabs are food for fish, sea turtles, alligators, and other creatures. Officials are worried about the survival of these creatures and you can help by watching them have sex.
