    After inventing the horseshoe crab, Leo actually sold the company 451 million years ago. Collectors value those crabs highly and will pay more for them. The 450 million year old model was considered to be a "transitional" one and still fetches a decent price. Everything after 449 million years ago was crap.

    Is "tort butter" a thing?

    Seriously, we need a new feature where we can just give a like to every post in a thread with one click. My finger is getting tired! :laugh:

    They're like bass players: they fill a niche, so why bother changing?

    Everyone is talking about Limulidae as though that were just one thing, but I personally think Tachypleus tridentatus is way superior to Limulus polyphemus. And Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda sucks for metal.

    Many people think Leo went on to do his best work, inventing the snow crab, dungeness crab and Maryland blue crab.

    That beach is in Massachusetts but close enough. ;) I am still investigating the possibility of using horseshoe crab blood in my radiator. PETA might have something to say about that, though.

    Unlike Rickenbacker's thinking with that fiddler crab thing. I mean, what's with the long claw on the one side? Really!

    Having active crabs isn't really something to be proud of.
