The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Robert Rommel for this program on January 30. If you've ever walked near the saltmarshes of Hilton Head Island at low tide you may have seen armies of Fiddler Crabs marching across the pluff mud. This talk will examine fiddler crabs and the birds and other animals that feed on fiddlers. Join us to hear about the behavior of these critters and how they fit into the ecology and nutrient cycling of the saltmarsh.
