Hordes of spider crabs gather near Melbourne

Recommended Posts

An Australian aquatic scientist has captured footage of the crustaceans congregating in Port Phillip Bay.

Quote

Each year as the ocean cools, hundreds of thousands of spider crabs migrate en masse to the warmer waters of Australia's southern shores.

If anyone remembers, the last time a phenomenon like this was witnessed there was a MASSIVE earthquake within 48 hours. I actually believe it was within 24 hours but I'm giving myself a bit of wiggle room. This was the South American quake a few months back. And I believe the earthquake was several hundred miles to the south east of where the crabs were spotted.

 

Edit: I just wanted to point that out in the case of a massive earthquake hitting Australia in the next 48 hours. This may be something we could watch for in the future.

For a moment, I thought they were running from illegal Chinese poachers!

No earthquake yet.

EDIT ONE: One just hit Namatanai, Papua New Guinea. 6.1!

CRAZY SAUCE!

EDIT TWO: One hit Kangaroo Island Saturday, too. 4.7.
