TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE  The most distinguishing mark on the red drum is one large black spot on the upper part of the tail base.   Its rare, but in some fish, multiple spots can be seen on the tail and on the body.  Each spot on a red fish is unique, almost like a fingerprint in that no two are the same.

GET CRABBY An important staple in any Charlestonians life, the Atlantic Blue Crabs are a favorite among locals.  As the main ingredient in she-crab soup, these crabs are highly sought after for their delicious meat.  Be careful though; their claws are strong enough to bring blood. ood.

STONE CRAB GAFFER  The stone crab loses its limbs easily to escape from predators or tight spaces, but their limbs will grow back to normal size in less than a year.    When a claw is broken such that the diaphragm at the body/claw joint is left intact, the wound will quickly heal itself and begin regeneration.
YELLOWJACKET



GREAT MARSH BUCK  The annual rut in Charleaton drives these majestic creatures to go to unheard of measures to find their mate.
