CREEPY CRAWLERS: Horror moment ‘biblical plague’ of 50 million CANNIBAL CRABS shut down roads as they head to breeding ground

The swarm of cannibalistic critters shut down roads from the jungle to the coast on Christmas Island off Western Australia.

Unbelievable footage shows the bright-red creatures descending on townships in what is considered one of the greatest animal migrations on the planet.

Every year, an estimated 50 million crabs make their way from the forest after rainfall in October or November and head to the ocean to mate.

The crabs generally eat leaves, fruits, flowers and seeds but have a dark side that sees them eat their young.

The crabs' cannibalistic side comes out when babies returning from their first ocean migration are feasted on by adults as part of their diet.


Their journey takes them through residential areas and tourist hotspots throughout the spring and summer months.

Photos and video shared by Parks Australia show thousands upon thousands of crabs scurrying across roads and specially-constructed bridges.

The animals also turned up at the door of an office block, the organisation reported.

A spokesperson for Parks Australia, which looks after the country's green spaces, said: "With red crab migration in full swing on Christmas Island, the crabs are turning up everywhere, including at the door of an office block.

"Our staff have been out managing traffic, raking crabs off roads, and providing updates to the community on road closures."

National Park acting manager Bianca Priest said the spectacular annual event on Christmas Island, which is popular with travellers, has become an attraction itself.

She said: "World-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough described the red crab migration as 'like a great scarlet curtain moving down the cliffs and rocks towards the sea' and considered filming the spectacle as one of his 10 greatest TV moments.

"Over the years visitors have travelled from every corner of the world to witness this wildlife phenomenon."

We Live in very crazy and abnormal times.

This is quite Similar to the Plague of Grasshoppers and Locust GOD ALMIGHTY used to ravage the land of Egypt, just before HE took HIS People away.

Folks! It's so visible to us the world is not normal anymore. We are in the Last of the Last Moments.

You always preach about end time. Your own Christianity no dy teach you about giving?
I see a lot of people here asking for help but you over look them and keep preaching about your end time.

Being a born again Christian is all about sacrifice, giving and being there for one another not always about preaching. When Christ was in this world he sacrificed a lot he helped the needy. He did not only preach about the father he made people understand what being a Christian really means.

You make a lot of people on this forum make mockery of Christianity and that's not right.
Keep the Bible aside go and watch passion of Christ and see what being a born again Christian really means.

You must be a deeper life member or chosen member because a lot their members can preach the word of God from now till tomorrow but they're very heartless and wicked.

PS: This world is not going to come to an end once you're dead That's your own end. so stop this end time of a thing .

I dont why you are trying to bring negativity from this natural event.

This isn't a disaster or a plaque. Animal migration for breeding, feeding, socializing etc is a natural event thst happens in many animal species.

And mind you it is the government that ordered the closure of the road so that humans do not influence this natural process.

This thread should be for education and not any preaching of doomsday or hell fire.

Preaching the Gospel comes with responsibility of not spreading ignorance.

Every small thing means the world is ending for this ignoramus. Even migration and mating rituals that have been going on for millions of years before me and you came to this earth is an indication of rapture. This just goes to show you how religion will always appeal to foolish, ignorant and uneducated buffoons.

Fraudulent preacher on the beat. It is deceitful to post a story with one account and comment with another. I guess deception is part of Righteousness2 creed. A deceptive soul is not a born again soul and will enter hellfire
