Halloween Crab

Also called the Harlequin Crab or the Moon Crab, this species lives in coastal Mexico and Central America as far down as Peru. Being forest dwellers, they subsist on leaves and seedlings and feed during the night. They spend most of their time on land, but always return to the water to lay their eggs.
