the first thought that came into my mind was "this look kinda fake"
like one of those alien movies.

thats a parrot fish
they have those teeth because they eat coral
that is a mole crap
also called a sand flea i beilive
i cought tons in oragon and cali a few summers back
you just gotta dig with your hands in the sand
after about 2 feet you will find them
hard work since the stupid sand keeps falling into the hole lol




thanx froggy

It does sort of look like a mole crab, but the one in the pic looks alot bigger than ones I find around here. Also, I thought mole crabs eat food particles in the sand, and arent parasites like the one in the pic.
