The app where life and weather
A mind-boggling number of hermit crabs began their migration on Nanny Point, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, seeming to bring the shores to pulsing life. The epic event was caught on film by local photographer Steve Simonsen.

I counted 4,329,985 of them. Anyone else?
Why are they still called Hermit crabs at such a time. They're obviously extremely social creatures at this point.Shouldn't they be called Kardash Krabs now that they're in abundance.
music SUCKED! I thought Troy was being invaded or they'd found Hitler and Jim Morrison alive on the island.
I agree, I wanted more information about why they were migrating and where to, how far, how many of them, at what "age" they migrated, etc. Nice photography but a waste of time.
Yes I agree that would have been cool to hear where they were going , why they didn't migrate through the water, how long they do ect.But it was an awesome thing to see that many in the same place and how they just climb right over one another.The mingling crabs is very funny wtg Aaron :)Yes they sure did rise.
well that was a big waste of time. Instead of that music that sounds like something out of a Sparta movie, why not put a voice over about why this is happening and interesting fact? I learned nothing by watching this.
these are no longer "hermit crabs".... They're "mingling crabs!!!" lol
