Iris and Terri met a ghost crab while we walked on the beach.
It had a damaged left eye and kept walking in circles.

Watching the ghost crab walk in circles.

It's left eye is laying on its side and only the right eye moves.

It let them rub the furry legs.

Iris picked it up and placed it next to a large crab hole in the sand.
But it would not go in.
