Not every baby turtle makes it to the waterline and the point is worth making. Aside from keeping a species population sustainable, very large hatches of a myriad of earth’s creatures provide a LOT of food for the rest of us. Not all the turtles make it into the water and thousands of other animals benefit from that outcome. Like the Ghost crab of the Seychelles. This highly adapted predator will make short work of baby turtle and be back for more before you know it. Poised on the hard packed sand atop 8 pinpoint claws to the turtle it looks just like what it is, a fearsome predator. A hungry, scuttling snarl of speartips, powered-up pincers and impenetrable armor. And what about those eyes? That’s just crazy, man!

Ghost crab. After Hurricane Dorian recently passed by us I was at the beach and was able to get a photo of this Ghost Crab as it rested from rebuilding a new home on the beach as his old one was under several inches of new sand which covered the beach.

Another installment of Adam’s Animal Adventures! Tonight I strolled out to the beach in the dark (which is spooky as shit by the way ) to capture a critter that I don’t really see during the day..it’s Mr. Ghost Crab! These little dudes freeze when you shine a light on them. It’s not easy to get a photo when your flashlight is your phone, but I got this. I saw several of these little dudes just skittering all over the beach. Very cool and spooky time. #AdamsAnimalAdventures #captivaisland #ghostcrab

If you’re quiet and look carefully just before sunset and right after sunrise you’ll see dozens of these little guys snacking. 👻 🦀 #ghostcrab #shotfromourdeck

This little ghost crab was doing some housework, keeping his 360 degree vision out for birds trying to swoop on him. If you look at the sand behind him you can see that he’s not the only crab in the neighborhood who’s out and about!

Ghost crabs use teeth in stomachs to ‘growl’ at predators. Scientists find first evidence of an animal using stomach sounds to communicate. . Scientists inserted endoscope into its gut, using a technique called laser doppler vibrometry, the scientists bounced a laser off the various parts of an aggravated crab. The reflections revealed that the strongest vibrations came from the animal’s gastric region. . What They Found: Crabs possess unusual apparatus to help them process food. Inside their stomachs are little teeth that together form what is known as a gastric mill. In ghost crabs, the mill has a central tooth flanked by neighbours that carry their own fine comb-like teeth. A complex arrangement of muscles and nerves sends the mill into motion, allowing crabs to shred food that has already passed into their stomachs. . Scientists suspected the mill was involved in the crustacean’s defences. To find out, the team took their crabs to a medical centre where they gave them x-rays as they wrestled with rods and other items. After several attempts, the researchers captured footage of the gastric mills grinding to generate the warning sounds.  #quizx #ghostcrab #biology #zoology #animals #animalstudy #crabs #crustaceans #marine #ocean #oceanlife #discovery #science #scientists #animalworld Source - New Scientist @newscientist
