Blue Land Crab

Cardisoma guanhumi


Large blue crab at mouth of a burrow in the forest of Utila. This individual has lost its large white foreclaw.


Broadleaf forest at sea level, adjacent to the beach.


This species was amazingly abundant in the forest, with dozens or hundreds per hectare, and as I walked down the trail, I could constantly hear the rustling of these crabs scurrying among the leaf litter.
