Ghost Crabs

Just returned from a perfect week in Isle of Palms with my entire family. One night, some of the cousins went hunting for ghost crabs after dark on the beach. Click here for more information about ghost crabs. So much fun!

They live in deep burrows safe from the hot sun and predators.

Check out the eyes! They are on mobile stalks.

Caught this one eating. They are omnivorous scavengers.

Females carry developing eggs under their bodies before releasing them into the water. Do you see the eggs under this crab?
