Another "is it safe question"
It looks like a crab, but is a purple/red colour.
Last night when I looked it was sitting either on or next to the star fish.
Any info would be great.
Thank you:)

Most crabs are oportunists. any better pictures? Mainly of the claw area.

At night is normally best , a few hours after lights off , with a red light or red filter on a torch .

I'd be tempted to set a trap, and remove it to be safe. Search on here for crab trap and you'll find a few threads with ideas
