Testimony? Why, of course!
Here's a shot of Crabland from the dock. As you can see, it's like a wooden castle with a large moat completely surrounding it.
Crabland has many holding tanks which are used for the peeler crabs. Peelers are crabs that are ready to molt (shed their shell). This is how the crab grows. Once the old shell is shed, the new shell underneath is soft for a period of time which makes the crab very vulnerable to be eaten by its predators, including man. Pumps constantly circulate water from the bay into the tanks.
Here's a plate of sauteed soft shell crabs- ready to be enjoyed. You eat the whole crab, folks- legs, pinchers and body. Soft shell crabs are great as a sandwich too, although, it grosses out some people out when they watch someone eating one with all the legs dangling out. Once you get past eating soft shell crabs, you're ready for escargot!
