Cardisoma guanhumi is omnivorous, collecting and eating leaves and fruits close to its burrow whilst also eating insects and carrion. Like many crabs, this species is cannibalistic. They move in the shade during the day and will eschew moving in prolonged direct sunlight to feed at night instead. Cardisoma guanhumi finds its food using light and sound detectors. Experiments show that crabs can be drawn out of their burrows to investigate the sound of falling fruit, once out they initiate a search for food. Predatory behavior is released in these crabs by detection of small moving objects. Crabs in the genus Cardisoma are able to detect small vibrations on the ground within the range of 10–1500 Hz and 70 dB. Visual acuity increases with body size due to an increase in both the number and diameter of ommatidia.
Photography and art is not just my passion, but I would say it is also some kind of meditation and compilation process for me that helps to abstract my mind from the everyday hurly-burly. Sometimes I prefer to give my works generic names because it is not just about what I see… It is more important to me what you see in my pictures! If any of my pictures “speaks” to you, “touch” you; please feel welcomed to give it a name, YOUR name.
