The first time I ever saw or heard of a horseshoe crab was while visiting the beach in Cape Cod. I was just a kid but the guy I was with said the thing they do with them when found washed up on the beach was to toss them by the tail back into the water. It was something about them getting washed up and not being able to return on their own before something bad happened. I remember him telling me then that they called them a "living fossil".

Anyway, about 6 months ago I was at a customers house and she had a large marine tank that we were talking about and her little girl asked me if I wanted to see her ? (can’t remember what she called it) and what she showed me was what looked like a small (about the size of a U.S. quarter) horseshoe crab growing in a small plastic container like those you’d see a Betta in at a shop. They had gotten it at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago as a souvenir and had grown it like kids would sea monkey’s. I mentioned it looked like a horseshoe crab at the time and she told me it wasn’t but was related? But for the life of me I can’t remember what she called it. She indicated it was her intention to add it to her tank at some point so maybe that’s something worth looking in to?
