  • History:

    The first written record of the Galapagos sally lightfoot crab was made in 1758, although it’s not a stretch to assume many different coastal civilizations were familiar with them as a food source prior to that date. It is one of the most commonly spotted crab species, and there is a good chance that you’ve seen one if you’ve ever visited a beach or shored located along the western coast of the Americas.
