Christmas Island Crabs

Christmas Island is a remote oceanic island which lies in Australian-owned territory, yet it lies closer to the Indonesian island of Java. It is rich with wildlife and is internationally famous for the spectacular annual migration of sixty million red land crabs, from the forest to the ocean to mate and spawn. At the first rains of the wet season (December) about 120 million crabs come out of hiding and start heading towards the ocean. That’s right, 120 million. To get there, they have to pass through town, across roads, through jungles and down a cliff. People find crabs all over their lawns, on their driveways and even in their houses.
