About This Activity

What has 10 beady eyes, 5 pairs of pinchy-like legs and whose design has been roaming the seas for 450 million years? It sounds like a dinosaur straight out of a sci-fi movie but is actually the gentle cousin of the scorpion and can be found right here in our estuaries. This week we’re going to visit horseshoe crab habitat and have intertidal explorations. We are going to get a feel for how these creepy crawlers see the world with their different types of eyes. And because these armored arthropods are living fossils, we’ll time travel back to the Ordovician and learn about the OG horseshoe crabs. Come travel back in time with us this week and who knows, we might find a horseshoe crab looking right back at us!
