B is for blue crab.

This is a female blue crab, which you can tell from the red tipped claws. The proper name for the blue crab is Callinectes sapidus which means beautiful savoury swimmer and so, unsurprisingly, the internet tells me they are very popular foodstuffs. I’ve never eaten any type of crab though and I’m pretty happy staying this way :)
