ghost crab - Ocypode quadrata
Cape May, Cape May County, New Jersey, USA

Present in immense numbers at night, from .5 in. to at least 4-5 inches. Difficult to photograph given their skittishness and also sandy and dark conditions... one of the larger ones put its claw right through my fingernail - that took months to heal fully!
