Sea Slater (Ligia pallasii) – 2015

We find this guys scrambling on the rocks just about the waterline when we are kayaking. Quite a creepy sight when there are a lot of them but Sea Slaters are harmless. This big one was about 1.5 inches (38 mm) which is as big as they get. Sometimes called Rock Lice.
