Video of a crab at a beach in Costa Rica

Here's a video of a crab at a beach in Costa Rica's pacific coast. Since I shared a photo of a crab with you before I thought it would be nice to show you a video so that you can see up-close how they move and what they really look like. If you have never seen a crab in real life, other than dead in a plate and ready to be eaten, you will find this video interesting.
