Looking for a great illustration of a horseshoe crab (a special request)

Specifically, I'm trying to see whether we can engage folks into the PHYLO card process by seeing if they work with requests. And we're going to start with a special one - coming from a luminary in the science plus art arena, this is from Margaret Atwood, who notes that her favourite organism is the horseshoe crab (or if we're being a little more precise, Limulus polyphemus).

In case, you're not sure what Ms. Atwood is talking about, it's one of these:

Curiously enough, we have an image already in the PHYLO illustration pool. It's great too, but let's see if we can get a few more?

Anyway, just to clarify - hoping to see if anyone will submit some great illustrations of the horseshoe crab, for contention for use as a PHYLO trading card. Any takers?

Good idea, I'm not an arty person, but i know a few who have drawn animals before... One in particular is amazing. I'll pass this on and hopefully it'll tickle her fancy - though she is very busy.

Cheers
