Ghost Crabs TG-C147




Ghost Crab Zinkwazi beach

Ghost Crab Zinkwazi beach by Therina Groenewald.

This animal has a pale body color that is similar to the color of sand.  The Ghost Crab at Zinkwazi beach is nearly invisible when it crawls about over sand. It is because of this apparent invisibility that the crab has got its unique name. The name is also suggestive of the fact that the activities of this creature are mainly restricted to night.
