Last night Brett was walking up the dune when all of a sudden I saw him fly through the air. His leap was just in time to save a hatchling’s life. The innocent hatchling had been making his way down the beach to the water when a mean crab grabbed him and proceeded to drag him down its burrow. Lucky for the hatchling Brett was there to make the brave rescue.
This hasn’t been the only time we have seen crabs viciously grab hatchlings. There have been quite a few cases when unfortunately we weren’t able to help the hatchlings. With saying that there were a couple other times when Brett was able to pull the hatchling out of a crab burrow.
