Why 50 million crabs are shutting down roads in Australia: ‘They are turning up everywhere’
The Independent says Millions of red crabs descended on roads and bridges in Australia’s Christmas Island as part of their yearly migration towards the ocean, shutting certain routes down.
The tiny island in northwestern Australia witnesses the migration every year of all of its crab population, estimated at about 50 million, the highest in the world.
The mesmerising view of crabs taking over large stretches of roads and parks catches the attention of residents and visitors who are once again racing to capture photos and videos of the migration.
