  • Holy Crab! Christmas Island Tourist Mark Pierrot Pictured with Giant Coconut Crab

    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 meas...

  • 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. Join us in May every year for our 1 week photo tour of this incredi...

  • Christmas Island - A Natural Wonder

    Christmas Island is often referred to as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean due to its unique and varied wildlife which includes large numbers of endemic as well as migratory sea birds. It is also known as the Kingdom of Crabs, for its many land crabs, especially the millions of red crabs, the annual migration of which has been described as one of the Wonders of the Natural World. Its volcanic landscape is home to forests and waterfalls, and there are large cave and cavern systems within it. The ocean around it abounds with marine life, from hundreds of species of reef fish, to the migratory pelagics: manta rays and whale sharks.

  • DOMINIC Fireballs, Pacific Testing, 1962, Christmas Island Area

    DTRA's history begins with the Manhattan Project, which then split into the Atomic Energy Commission and the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project after WWII. The AFSWP became the Defense Atomic Support Agency in 1959; DASA became the Defense Nuclear Agency in 1971; DNA became the Defense Special Weapons Agency in 1996, and was one of the four agencies/programs that combined in 1998 to form the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

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.'

These weapons-related devices were dropped from B-52’s staged out of Hawaii from April 27 to July 11, 1962. After the Soviet Union resumed atmospheric testing in violation of a treaty with the United States, President Kennedy authorized the U.S. to resume atmospheric testing on March 2, 1962. The video, comprised of small rolls of film that had never been released, shows the fireballs of 16 nuclear devices being fired off the southern end of Christmas Island, which had been used earlier by the British for nuclear testing. The United States was striving to increase the yield-to-weight ratio of weapons so they could be delivered by existing aircraft. The tests shown from the 1962 Operation Dominic were as follows: AZTEC, April 27, 410 kilotons (kt) QUESTA, May 4, 670 kt YUKON, May 8, 100 kt MESILLA, May 9, 100 kt ENCINO, May 12, 500 kt SWANEE, May 14, 97 kt YESO, June 10, 3 megatons (Mt) HARLEM, June 12, 1.2 Mt RINCONADA, June 15, 800 kt DULCE, June 17, 52 kt PETIT, June 19, 2.2 kt OTOWI, June 22, 81.5 kt BIGHORN, June 27, 7.65 Mt BLUESTONE, June 30, 1.27 Mt SUNSET, July 10, 1 Mt PAMLICO, July 11, 3.88 Mt
