DH-3687 Smooth-handed Ghost Crab with horizontal eyes

DH-3687
Smooth-handed Ghost Crab with horizontal eyes
On Home Island in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Indian Ocean.
Ocypode cordimana
So called because it largely lacks the ridges inside the large claw. Colour varies according to background. Here on a white sandy beach it is very pale. This crab had just flicked its eyes down to horizontal but quickly returned them to vertical. Is carnivorous and cannibalistic. Widespread in the Indo-Pacific region.
