Crabs are artists

Malaysia

Crabs are strange creatures.

They live in their own world.

They walk sideways, they use huge calipers to feed and fight, they have huge bodies and tiny feet (well… most of them).

In Langkawi Island, Malaysia, some very small crabs, no bigger than a couple of millimeters, were digging their nests in the sand. The product of their digging was little balls of sand that were put in such a way that creates different, very artistic shapes.

Really impressive!

Unfortunately as the tide goes high, everything is gone so next day the story starts from the beginning…

Picture was taken in December 2007.
