These holes and sandballs were made by Fiddler Crabs. The large balls were made during excavation of the hole, the small ones were made during feeding. The crabs roll balls of sand in front of their mouth to extract bits of organic material to eat. The beach can be covered by these small balls of sand at low tide. The tunnel in the upper right corner was made by a mole cricket.
