We are honored and tickled that Ann, the Beach Chair Scientist, asked us to join in on her Tuesday fun! Ann posted a mini-interview with us today. We had a wonderful time working with her! (Ann, many thanks!)

Our middle and youngest daughters are also “Treasure Hunters”, and our oldest daughter is a frequent contributor. Our family, including our two adorable grandchildren, is often pictured on the blog’s posts. Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches.com has become quite a family affair! ~Jody

With calming music playing in the background you can witness the horseshoe crab as it burrows in the sand and exerts a tremendous amount of effort pulsing and pushing as it releases itself from its old shell. You can also get a glimpse as to the interesting creatures crawling around on the shores of the Pacific sea. For more information on the morphology differences between the four extant species of horseshoe crabs visit the Ecological Research & Development Group (ERDG), a leading resource for…
