The amazing red crab migration of Christmas Island
This is nothing to do with church or technology or the usual stuff of this blog. I’m posting it anyway, because it’s cool and a bit terrifying all at once. It’s the amazing red crab migration of Christmas Island.
From October through December, adult crabs make their way from the interior forests to the beaches to spawn. It is a slow-moving stampede. While the crabs are not aggressive, seeing a moving wave like a gigantic seafood smorgasbord is a little terrifying. Some of the animals are 50 or 60 years old, and they are very large (nearly 5 inches long). The males are larger, and the females have daintier claws. The colors of the crabs vary: some are orange and coral-red, with a rare purple animal now and then. They eat almost anything, including grass, fresh or rotting leaves, and even dung!
Watch the video. Trust me, it’s worth it.
If you can make a connection (allegorical or otherwise) between these crazy crabs and church, you will win a priceless gift: the admiration of 7WD readers. I challenge you!
