Here's something from before the Dinosaurs....

Horseshoe crabs have been around for millions of years, they were wondering around the shores of bays and lagoons long before the dinosaurs and they are still here today.

Horseshoe Crabs shed their shells, a process called molting as they grow. This is a shell from a horseshoe crab that had shed its shell, no horseshoe crab was harmed.

Typically these shells are between 5 and 7 inches across the body and between 12 and 16 inches measuring from the tip of the head to the tip of the tail. They have been cleaned, sterilized and sealed with a preservative.
