Hermit Crab  
I paused by the water to watch some fishermen cast their nets into Florida's Intracoastal Waterway and was delighted when they pulled out this hermit crab. It's quite a bit bigger than the ones I'm used to seeing. Hermit crabs live in shells that other creatures have moved out of.

We watched it walk for a bit and then tossed it gently back into the water.
