Crab in car

hi all new here
I don't have an aquarium. But I do have an issue. I found a crab in my car about a week ago and I need help identifying it so that I know where to release it. Can anyone help

Hi Reyna

A picture might help. Also, where has your car been? I'm thinking it had to have been near a waterway.

I could be wrong, but it looks like some sort of mithrax. It's probably best released in a rocky, tidal area. Just a guess though.

Thanks HN1.
How long can they live without their normal habitat?

No clue.... I'd say the sooner you can return it the better.

How'd he get in the car? fall out of a tree? dropped by a gull?


I would put it back where you were last at the shoreline. just take em to the jetty or a rock pile and let him do his thing.
