Ghost Crabs hang out on the beach where they blend in with the sand.  These guys and gals can move really fast, up to 10 miles per hour, so watch where you step when you go walking on the beach!  They like to eat other crabs, insects, clams and plants.  Not being a very picky eater is called being an omnivore.
