Wildlife Picture: Ghost Crab
This little guy is a pallid ghost crab (Ocypode pallidula Jacquinot 1852). These crabs are small (usually under 3 cm carapace width) scavengers that live in high intertidal to supertidal areas where there is sand. They have an Indo-Pacific distribution, and are indigenous to the Hawaiian islands.
