Talk Thursday ~ Sand Bubbler Crabs

Sobrina Chiquita brought a borrowed Go Pro camera whilst she was visiting recently.   The first couple of days she was here she was in the experimental phase with the camera trying to work out the video and still pictures.  She set up the camera on one of our local beaches near a crab hole to see what she could capture on video and it was quite entertaining.

I wrote a small post about Sand Bubbler Crabs a few years ago and included some pictures of the wonderful art work that they create in the sand.  If you’d like to see those pictures you can click here.  Today I’d like to share what these little guys in Australia do at low tide which is pretty much what our crabs do…in the campo.

    We’re always amazed by the patterns these little critters create, but never thought to search for why/what they were doing. Thanks for sharing the answer. Cheers, Mariah/By

    Love this video, and of course I’ve seen these sand patterns on the beach at Rio Hato. I assumed they were made by some type of crab, but now I have the full story. Thanks! P.

      They are pretty neat to watch. They are red here though instead of the white in the video. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you!
