Horseshoe Crabs on Animal Planets

Horseshoe Crabs on Animal Planets SpringWatch USA

The Delaware Bay is the BEST place in the WORLD for the spawing of horseshoe crabs and ONLY found on the east coast of the United States.
They have hardly changed in 300 million years. They were here BEFORE the dinosaurs.
Fortescue NJ is briefly seen in this 3 min segment.

These crabs have such a high & stronge immune system that AIDS vaccine/drugs cocktail comes from the blood of this family considered to be in the spider/scorpian family but really in its own class.
