On The Ghost Crab

My friend Jay has a story about a crab.

The ghost crab is this little, light colored crustacean, not very big across, nor very threatening, but the ghost crab has a certain trait of interest.

You see the male ghost crab has one little claw, which he uses to constantly funnel food particles into his mouth. His other claw is quite large, compared to the rest of him, and is otherwise useless, save for swelling with each meal and getting waved about in the air to attract mates.

As Jay puts it, the males ghost crab's entire live can be summed up as, "Gobble gobble gobble, bitches! Gobble gobble, bitches?"

What a life for such a little crab.
