Thank you LauraMaria! It was an amazing view, so many orange crabs around me. Love them!

Cool, it's a fiddler crab so in the Uca genus, and I would be pretty confident in saying it's Uca flammula since that colouration is pretty distinctive! Nice photos, what cool looking crabs!

wow, very nice pics
