The Sally Lightfoot Crab (Grapsus grapsus) is native to the Galapagos and is most abundant there. However, it is also found in the coastal regions of South America and up as far as Baja California Sur, Mexico. It is a quick-moving, agile crab which lives amongst the rocks on the shores. It feeds primarily on algae, but is an opportunistic feeder. It is among the creatures sighted by Charles Darwin when he voyaged to the isles on the HMS Beagle.
Fishermen use it for bait, although this elusive crab is reputed as being extremely difficult to catch.
