The film shows some behaviour patterns of the ghost-crab Ocypode saratan near Kosseir/Egypt and Suakin/Sudan on the Red Sea which are connected with the building of holes for occupation and mating. Juveniles and adults scatter the sand dug out in a star shape around the mouth of the cave, during the mating season however the males pile up this sand and defend the immediate vicinity of the hole against rival males.
