What a crab!

Choir buddy Erin went snorkeling with us last week, and she found this recently….um…emptied….crab shell: The crab is (was) a 7-11 crab, so named for for the 7 upper and 4 underside dots. Hawaiian mythology says the dots were left in place when Kanaloa the sea-god handled the crab and left his fingerprints. (or, an alternate story: he picked up the crab who snapped the god with his pincer, causing the god to bleed and make the red dots.)
