Migration of giant spider crabs

Unless you get the chance to dive in Australia’s Port Phillip Bay, you may never witness the migration of giant spider crabs. Thanks to Museum Victoria’s video, we can see this incredible natural phenomenon.

The crabs move into shallower waters to molt. By sticking together in the thousands, they are better able to survive the predators who like to snack on them.
