Soldier Crab and Butterfly Moments

Waves of scurrying blue soldier crabs are a common sight on the sand and mud flats of  Queensland !

The Moon Snail is one of the Soldier Crabs main predators on the sand ! They come up from underneath the sand to feed on the Soldier Crabs.

Soldier Crabs walk forwards not sideways like other crabs! 

 They absorb air through their legs!
