of the horseshoe crab. The horseshoe crab is also known as the horsefoot,
saucepan or helmet crab. The horseshoe crab is found in the Gulf of Mexico
and up the Atlantic coast of North America. The horseshoe crab is more closely
related to spiders and scorpion than to crabs. Horseshoe crabs can regrow
lost limbs. The shell of the horseshoe crab
is shaped like a horseshoe, with the female horseshoe crab shell being larger
than the male horseshoe crab shell.
