TUNA CRAB INVASION IN SAN DIEGO

June Art Journal Page 53 WATERMARKTuna crabs came on shore in San Diego by the millions.  Heermann’s gulls gorged on the Tuna Crabs.  Kids dug pits in the sand & filled sand pails with sea water trying to save them from dying.  The beach was red with crabs & green with seaweed & eel grass.  According to scientists this is an indication of El Nino condition and predicts a heavy rainy season in San Diego, which we sorely need.  Tuna Crabs are also knows as Squat Lobsters or Red Pelagic Crabs.
