The Horn-eyed ghost crab, Ocypode ceratophthalmus (Brachyura - Ocypodidae) is a large (6-8cm) but elusive crab is common on many shores in the Indo-Pacific.
The body of the horn-eyed ghost crab is squarish box-like; usually bluish grey with brown markings on the back, often in the shape of an “H”. But a variety of other patterns also seen. Adult crabs have a characteristic tall skinny point or ‘horn’ on top of each eye (called the stylophthalmous), usually darker in color. The horn is shorter in females and absent in juveniles (2.5cm or smaller).
Both school and public libraries have played a pivotal role in helping build the joy and love of reading in our children. For this, my wife and I will be forever grateful. I am a library advocate and wish the same feeling of joy and empowerment for all Americans. I want to give back what they have given to me.
