Day 4.133: Little cousin

The sign above the horseshoe crab tank at the Berkshire Museum points out that these creatures that are largely unchanged since prehistoric times are not, in fact, crabs. Rather they are related to ticks and spiders.

Which I suppose makes this little critter:

one of their tiny cousins.

It was feeding on Exile #3 when we encountered it. Delightful.
