Unfortunately, these small and colourful crabs are not edible. They are called ‘ghamah’ in local lingo. These ‘ghamah’ dig burrows and built mounds of soil on the wet land as their homes.

Under the stilted houses in Daro and other various coastal part of Sarawak too, there are mounds of soil in various sizes being constructed by the ‘ghamah’.

Being a shy creature, a ‘ghamah’ will disappear quickly into its burrow upon noticing a slight movement. And they are camera-shy too!
