photos taken with macro set up so not full body shots. Noted missing legs. They were isolated individuals from the dive landing out to where the sand encroaches under the pier on the swim to the T.

Giant Spider Crabs (Leptomithrax gaimardii) aggregation in Port Phillip Bay over Easter. These photos near Edwards Point, St Leonards, show crabs in shallow water heading back out of the Bay to deep water. Also witnessed crabs on their way into the Bay the evening before but higher tide so deeper water and no photos.
