    As you can probably tell from its name, the Christmas Island red crab is a species of crab native to Christmas Island. Every year, millions of them will leave their forest burrows and swarm across the island to breed, leaving Christmas Island’s residents to deal with the consequences of their homes being overrun by crabs that outnumber the human populace almost 20,000 to 1.

    Seen this on a nature program a few years ago, fantastic to watch, and glad they have a barrier up against the roadside as many do not make it due to being run over.
