  1. family limulidae

    The family Limulidae is a group of marine chondrichthyan arthropods, commonly known as horseshoe crabs. These creatures are known for their distinct, exoskeleton, horseshoe-shaped head and a long, pointed tail known as a telson. Despite their name, they are not true crabs but are more closely related to spiders and scorpions. They have been in existence for over 450 million years with minimal evolutionary change, hence they are often referred to as "living fossils".
