Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

"The Dungeness crab wears a pretty fan-shaped shell that's often done up in purple hues. But eye-catching colors aside, this fellow can be surprisingly hard to spot! That's because the Dungeness crab is something of an expert hider. When scared, it plays a nifty trick! That is, it buries itself beneath the sand with impressive speed. "Now you see me, now you don't," it says as it vanishes before your very eyes!"
