Strange Amphipod

Strange Amphipod
Duxbury, Massachusetts, USA
April 9, 2018
Size: Around an Inch
I found this sand hopper like creature under a rock. I was on a plateau of grass very close to the ocean shore (likely a marsh, with, no surprise, marsh "grass"), and I decided to lift up a rock. I found several hopping creatures of varying colors and sizes, one of them, the largest, was this creature.
