What type of crabs are the small ones on the rocks near the ocean?

    Sand crabs like to hang out in the “swash zone” or the area where waves break in the ocean (on the rocks). As the “swash zone” moved with the tide, the sand crabs move with it. The sand crabs burrow backwards in the sand near those rocks in the “swash zone” so that they face seaward to eat.
    However, the crab may not always be a sand crab it may simply be a smaller crab waiting to become a larger crab that you would find in the ocean. Your location also depends on the crab type.
