Sometimes the claw is the only evidence. This is from one of the rock crab family, I think.

Asian Shore Crab (Hemigrapsus sanguineus). Another tentative ID.

Atlantic Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus).

Flat-clawed Hermit (Pagurus pollicaris). (Gave this one its own post.)

    I found some leftovers like this on a cedar tree stump beside my pond many years ago. Likely a crawdad.
