Horror Movie Or Real Life? - Video Of The 'Invasion Of The Christmas Crabs'

Christmas Island's famous red crabs started their annual migration this week - much earlier than before.

For those that have never witnessed this event, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is more like something out of a horror movie than real life... more than 150 million crabs travel more than three miles through city streets, shops and schools. Check out the video to get a feel of what it might be like in real life. (feeling hungry yet?)

I wanted to go there on holiday in December, but as all the return flights were full, I couldn't book. Hope I can go there end December/beginning January now, waiting for confirmation.

From a nature point of view, CI has a lot to offer :) Perfect for me

Crab! I saw the incident in tv program before. It's true, but it's very scary that you see so many crab going around your place.
