This one is quite a big female you can see how she carries her eggs under her front legs in the second picture.
These little guys burrow just under the sand, usually around rocks near the surf. If you do enough digging around different rock pools along the beach you're guaranteed to find one - usually you spot them when they're floating away with the wave!
Always fun to see if you can find these at the beach..it can be quite the challenge as they are rather 'shy' and don't much like being out of the sand.
