Candy Apple CRAB

This isn't a fiery red crab and this isn't Newport Beach but finding this little creature on shore was timed perfectly with the  current "invasion" of  thousands of red crabs along the southern beaches of California due the increasing warm temperature of the ocean. The rare pelagic red crab is  usually found farther south around Baja California. The possible trend could be the result of waters warming from El Nino.
