Caption: Horned ghost crab (Ocypode ceratophthalmus). Like other ghost crabs, this crab has one claw larger than the other. Ghost crabs live in burrows in the sand, emerging to feed on debris and carrion. Photographed on Cousin Island, in the Seychelles, a group of islands north of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean.
