Footprints in the Sand

Daily Image - 6 September 2011 - Footprints in the Sand

You never know what you’re going to find on the beach at low tide. I came upon several “footprints” like this, each ending with an oblong depression in the sand. Any ideas?

    They look like the cruziana that have been left as fossil imprints by various multi-legged creatures such as arthropods. I’m guessing they’re some type of crab tracks and the depression is the spot where the crab itself sought cover under the sand. I could well be wrong, though.
