While crabbing in brackish water i noticed a few blue claw crabs had a rusty color bottom and brown legs.
When I cleaned them I noticed the lungs were darker than typical.
Are these crabs ok to eat ?

I have seen yellowish undersides before but not rust colored and the brown legs and dark lungs gave me pause.
What the deal with this ?

Many crabs look like that when they are on mud for awhile.  Your nose will let you know a bad crab.  Wink

Isn't that how the Bat decides if you get to come into the house or not?  Huh Grin

This is how it's going to go.  After I kick your A$$ i'm going to run you through the wood chipper and put you in containers in the freezer to use in my crab pots!  The really sad part?  You let an old man kick your A$$!!!
