The army of giant crabs invades the ocean floor 6/20/2016 •

Have you ever seen crab migration? Yep, you've probably seen. This time we're gonna show you something completely different.


A spectacular migration of crabs usually starts at the beginning of the wet season (October/November). However, behaviour of Japanese spider crabs deviates from the behaviour of other crab species. At the middle of June, giant crabs begin to shed their shells, then becoming vulnerable to predators.

This is how crab moulting looks:

Luckily, these creatures have found the way to keep themself safe and it does look impressive! Scientists call it "Safety in numbers".

I've seen Blue crabs sluff!That is when they come out of their shell and are soft!They become hard in a few hours as long as tide is running over them!If taken out of the water and the top shell moves when they breath they will die in about an hour unless put back in the water!If she'll doesn't move when they breath they will live approx 2 weeks in 30 degree weather and remain soft!
