  • Christmas Island Baby Red Crab Return Dec 2016

    Every year on Australia's Christmas Island, 50 million red crabs leave their forest burrows and migrate on mass down to the coast to spawn into the sea. Their eggs hatch on contact with the water and then drift with the ocean currents for about a month, slowly transforming from plankton-like critters with tails into tiny crabs. If it's a good year and the ocean currents happen to bring them back to the island in time, then those that are not eaten by whale sharks clamber ashore and begin their march into the jungle, smothering everything in their way in a spectacular red carpet. Some years there are almost none, but 2016 when this video was shot was an unprecedented year, with more baby crabs returning than ever before.

Fearless holidaymaker Mark Pierrot picked up a coconut crab and posed fora photo in the Christmas Island jungle. Weighing up to 9lbs and measuring 3ft in length, the alien-like crustacean is the largest land-living crab in the world. Threatened by hunters, the coconut crab's meat is considered a delicacy and an aphrodisiac on some islands. A fearless tourist has returned home with the holiday snap of a lifetime after he encountered a giant crab on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean. Mark Pierrot was bold enough to pick up the massive coconut crab and hold it for the camera as he visited the jungle on Christmas Island. With terrifying claws that are powerful enough to crack coconuts, the alien-like crustacean is the largest land-living arthropod in the world, weighing up to 9lbs and measuring up to 3ft in length. It is estimated that tiny Christmas Island, an Australian territory, is home to more than a million coconut crabs – and they’re one of the reasons tourists visit. The monstrous crabs can climb trees but will drown in water, and are also known as robber crabs or palm thieves because they will get their claws on anything. Linda Cash, Christmas Island marketing manager, told AAP: ‘The reason they’re called robber crabs is because they steal everything. ‘If you leave something lying around, you can be pretty sure that a robber crab will take it away.’ She said the crabs have been known to steal shovels, drills and food, and there is an urban myth that one stole a rifle from a soldier who was stationed on the island decades ago. Nicknamed ‘crabzilla’ by those who have encountered it and shared their photos online, coconut crabs, a species of hermit crab, are found on many islands in the Pacific and Indian oceans, and once lived on mainland Australia. In addition to coconuts, their diet includes fruit, dead animals and other crabs. While the global population is not known, the crab is threatened by hunters, as residents of many islands consider their meat a delicacy and aphrodisiac. However, coconut crabs are protected on Christmas Island, where it is illegal to hunt and eat them. Those who do so can be fined AUD$5,500 (£2,700 or USD$4,000). Rachel Jones, head of the aquarium at London Zoo, once told MailOnline: '[The crab] lives in trees ... and gets into all sorts of places. They have big jaws that can crack open coconut shells, and they also feast on rats and other crabs. 'They can get pretty big, with a span of around 60 to 70 centimetres (23.6 to 27.5 inches). They are scary looking things.'

It’s just a piece of plastic. It’s just a doll. • Dolls are already one of the creepiest things on the planet. But you know what’s creepier than dolls? An island full of dolls hanging from trees covered in spider webs and filth. • In the canals of Xochimilco, Mexico City, people have long noticed a strange and somewhat disturbing landmark exactly of this kind: It’s a small forest island decorated with decapitated, cracked, eyeless or otherwise mutilated dolls of all sorts – Barbies, baby dolls – it’s the place where toys go to become nightmares. • The man who created the doll island was named Don Julián Santana Barrera. According to the popular legend behind the island (hard to tell which parts, if any, are true), Don Julian claimed to have discovered a girl drowned in the canals around the island many decades ago. To protect against hauntings from evil spirits and/or the girl’s ghost, he began hanging up dolls he found floating in the canals or tossed away in the local garbage. The story continues that he eventually began bartering his homegrown produce for more dolls. Over the years, the island accumulated quite a few. • Unfortunately, Don Julian passed away in 2001. • Tourists can now take ferry rides out to the Island of the Dolls to see it for themselves. • Christmas Island, Australia • Christmas Island is an island in the Indian Ocean administered by Australia. • Christmas Island doesn’t have ghosts or creepy dolls or anything – it has CRABS. Millions and millions of crabs. Enough crabs that it’s weird: Some estimates predict the island has 40 to 50 million individuals of the species Gecarcoidea natalis, the Christmas Island red crab. Other estimates we’ve seen are as high as 120 million. • Christmas Island is famous for its great yearly crab migration, which happens around the beginning of the rainy season, sometime between October and January. During this migration, millions and millions of Christmas Island red crabs pour out of the central forests of the island and travel to the shore to mate and lay eggs. And when the crab babies hatch, they look like a gigantic swarm of pink ants ascending out of the surf. • The yearly mating migration is a bizarre and amazing thing to see – millions of crabs scuttling in unison – but it can be trouble for both the crabs and the island’s human residents when the crab migration crosses roads. • To prevent unfortunate encounters between humankind and crabkind, officials have installed what are called “crab grids” – these are systems of road underpasses topped with metal grates, allowing the crabs to crawl underneath the streets. The crabs are funneled toward the crab grids by systems of low walls along the sides of the roads.
