If I see one when I am down in the Delmarva area I will thank them then while eating their blue crab friends.

Unfortunately, that also means Horseshoe Crabs will suffer by the thousands for  medicine's sake. Honestly, taking a moment to be grateful to a species that effectively keeps us alive would be a moment well earned...

Don't listen to him! Besides, there is hardly any meat on those weird looking suckers. But they are cool the watch on the beaches of Delaware River and Barry. And they attract millions of shorebirds to eat their eggs. Nature.

They're cool. I hope that we can develop a synthetic version of their magic crab juice so that we can stop bothering them every year.

If you like horseshoe crabs, you'd love cockroaches.
