Ocypode quadrata, the Atlantic ghost crab;
Flagler county, Florida (06 July 2019).

I went to high school in Daytona Beach (located just south of my hometown of Ormond Beach, where I currently reside). We were the Seabreeze Fightin’ Sandcrabs. That’s one hell of a mascot, right? The sandcrab? Anyhow, featured here is the Atlantic ghost crab, a small, shy, reclusive scavenger that lives in holes on the beach and goes about eating whatever random stuff it can find when nobody’s looking. They’re also known as sand crabs. Learn more about the Seabreeze Fighting Sandcrabs.
