Stock: sand texture from crabs

This was a bit of beach in Malaysia, taken... last year? during my trip to a fruit farm... I felt the beach's sand was weird [so knobbly] and made for good texture, and was happily taking pictures of it when I noticed the tiny crabs. Who were making the lovely texture by processing and spitting out little balls of sand...

Yep, what you see here is the end result of what gazillions of tiny hungry crabs can do! The beach was huge and covered with tiny crabhome entrances and tiny balls of sand as far as the eye can see! They ran to their hiding holes as soon as I or anyone else got close, so I couldn't get them in the picture, but I caught one of the little crabs in a origami box for a nice photo [and let it go of course]. *laughs* It was amazing!

But the rest of the people on the same tour were so oblivious to it, their eyes only on the landmark [a big oddly shaped piece of natural rock] we were supposed to see.... it kinda made me sad how people didn't notice, but it was probably because they're too small. XD [I nearly missed them myself] And bless you for reading this wall of text.
