Ghostly Crabs:
A Haunting Dilemma on Brevard Beaches

Presentation by Dr. Richard Turner

October 23 at Harris Community Auditorium, Foosaner Art Museum

The Atlantic ghost crab haunts the beaches of the western Atlantic Ocean from New England to Brazil. Fossils of the crabs have been found along Brevard shores (and nowhere else) for decades, to the delight of generations of local beachcombers. The presence of these fossils raises several questions in the mind of the biologist and paleontologist, and these puzzles will be addressed in this talk.
