This Is What Millions Of Migrating Crabs On ‘Crab Bridges’ Look Like


Here we go lads! (Picture: Mercury)

Ever wanted to see millions and millions of ruby-red crabs scuttling out of the forest and into the ocean?

 

Cool, you’re in luck.

 

Timelapse footage shows how the Christmas Island red crabs migrate in their annual march, via specially designed ‘crab bridges’.

 

It’s the world’s biggest annual crab migration as they make their way back to the Pacific Ocean, with so many of the them that roads have to be closed to make way.

 

Photographer Kirsty Faulkner, 40, captured the stunning sight this weekend.

 

 

Mum-of-three Kirsty said: ‘It’s just incredible, everybody that you see, whether they have grown up on the island or people like me who moved here more recently, think it’s amazing.

 

‘It’s a wonderful thing for people to see, it just never gets old.’

 

Kirsty said the 45million crabs are half-way down the island using bridges and tunnels to either scamper over or under roads.

 

‘When they migrate we’re very conscious about where we walk and drive,’ she said.

 

‘We have road closures which depend on where the crabs are.

 

‘The National Parks team put up barriers along a lot of the roads on the island to keep them safe.

 

‘My children, aged 11-15, use a garden rake to gently move the crabs out of the way on the road to make sure they don’t get run over.

 

‘The crabs can look a little bit creepy on the time-lapse video but it really is amazing to see.’
