Sally Lightfoot Crab

 
 The sally lightfoot crab (sally-lite-foot-krab) gets its name because it is one of the fastest crabs dashing around the beach.  Most reports of "Sally Lightfoot Crabs" along all the coasts of Baja California Sur probably refer to Grapsus grapsus, (which is translated from Greek as Crab Crab) and is most abundant and most photographed in its native habitat, the Galapagos Islands. These crabs found at Baja California Sur at Los Cabos actually more resemble another crab called "Sally Lightfoot," the Nimble Spray Crab, Percnon gibbesi, which is found predominantly in the Caribbean and other tropic waters around the world.
