Conversation Starters: Growling Ghost Crabs


We found out from Mindy, that ghost grabs got their name from their pale coloring. What else would you name these special shellfish? Snow crabs??? Loud mouths??? Get creative and make a list of alternative names.


As humans digest their food, you might hear a grumble or a growl from time to time as the intestines do their job.  What foods do you love??? What makes your stomach growl???


While listening to Growling-Ghost Crabs, what made you say, “Wow!”? Was it the fact that ghost crabs have a set of teeth located in their guts? Maybe it was something else? Turn and talk to someone about what is wowing you right now!
