An amazing natural phenomenon was caught on tape when millions of Hermit Crab covered the shores of St. John in Virgin Island.
Every August of the year in the shore of St John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a weird phenomenon occurs when hundreds of thousands or maybe more than a million of Hermit crabs make the crustaceanâ€™s mass migration and journey towards the sea.
Hermit crabs, also known as soldier crabs, are found throughout the Caribbean islands and take part in a great migration en masse annually in August to mate. The crustaceans travel to the beach, leave their shells and enter the water to lay eggs, according to Smithosianmag.com.
Steve Simonsen, who captured the phenomenon last week, said he was covered with crabs in the shooting process. Watch his amazing clip above!
