Samurai crab dances on Hunting Island marshes (Beaufort attractions and free things to do)

The Hunting Island gorgeous marshes are crawling with these little warrior Samurai look alike crabs. They do seem to “dance” all day the long foraging for food in the black rich mud. The well developed weapon arm is used for digging and to fend off predators and the right small arm is used for eating.

You can admire these marsh performers for free on the half mile nature trail boardwalk. The trail is on the right side of the road soon after you pass the entrance sign to the Hunting Island State Park.

Stay fearless on the South Carolina Coast!
