Young Girl Scoots Along With Migrating Christmas Island Red Crabs

Red crab migration season, which sees millions of crabs make their way to the ocean to breed, has kicked off on Australia’s Christmas Island, and one youngster was keen to follow along by scooter.

According to Parks Australia, the exact timing of the annual migration is determined by the phase of the moon.
