While enjoying the sun and beaches in St. Maarten (SXM), it's neat to watch the little sand crabs digging their home for the day. They seem to sense or "see" movement, and whenever they do, they literally fly into their hole. After a couple of minutes, they stick their head out, usually have a claw full of sand (you can see the ball of sand this guy just tossed), and proceed to toss it about 4 or 5 inches away from the hole they're digging. Click on this photo for a closeup of this crabs' eyes. He seems to be cross eyed. As for the beach and watching crabs, that's going to have to wait for a while. I head back to Newark in the morning so I can beat the snowstorm that's due to hit there tomorrow night. How fun...... See you in a few days!
