Wildlife


A tiny crab, not more than 4 inches/10 cm across, scuttling across Playa Langosta. Mrs. C found a bunch more on one of the lava rock formations jutting out of the water. They were wet and slippery, and I have a poor sense of balance (from creaky knees and trifocals?) so I decided to take her word for it.

Those are three tiny snails in front of the crab. I don't think it was interested in them as a snack. The crab found its way into a hole in the sand moments later. The bottom picture is a broad view of the area.

I must say that the crab have a very nice camouflaged pattern for the sand.

In Costa Rica you have to share the beach with the crabs and share the road with the iguanas.

They're quite an alien looking critter.
