I have written about golfing in Beira before. (See here.) I mentioned the danger of the golf-ball sized crab holes. What I did not mention is that the crabs actually steal the balls. I’m not kidding. I thought the caddies were kidding when they would frantically run after lost balls, exclaiming we needed to find them before the crabs did. I just thought if the balls were gone, it was because they rolled into the holes. Until I saw a big red crab come out of its hole, grab a ball, and retreat into its hole with its treasure.
This photo makes me laugh because it shows everyone searching in the rough for lost balls.
