The Sandy Yellow Crabs

There were several of these small yellow crabs along the shore. Most of them were about the same size as they are in these pictures (without clicking them to make the photo large). They were pretty inactive and will only respond if we attempt to provoke it.
Most of them were covered in sand. That's when I realized that when they feel threatened, they slowly cover themselves with sand such that withina few minutes it would have sunk almost completely into the sand!

Nice shots of these seashore creatures! Here in Singapore I've never seen such nice animals in our beaches!

Thanks William. Well same for me, in S'pore beaches we rarely see this much of animals... However there are a few beaches that can hold this much critters like the beaches of Sentosa etc.
