Product description:


Anyone who spends time enjoying Hawaii’s endless sandy beaches becomes familiar with a common inhabitant - the ghost crab. These active crabs inhabit beaches just above the waterline, and they are among the world’s fastest creatures.

Also known as sand crabs, ghost crabs are scavengers, and as they and run up and down the beach in search of food, they'll eat most any plant or animal material washed ashore by the waves and tide.

Ghost crabs are well named, for they seem to "disappear" - their pale colors match the sand on which they live, and they dart quickly down into burrows at any sign of disturbance.

In this view, one of the shy creatures takes a moment to pose for the lens of photographer Dave Shively.
