The Tiniest Crab in Chincoteague

This crab was simply a riot and his personality shines through in this photo. My stepson is holding him in the photo very gently and it's almost as if he's posing for the shot. He kept following us on the beach so we gave him a name, "Kevin" and he just made us laugh with his antics. I believe this is the tiniest crab I have ever seen.
