An army of hermit crabs carpeted a beach in St. John last month and a videographer captured incredible footage of the crustacean crush.
Steve Simonsen's friend alerted him to the migration and he wasted no time scooping up his Canon EOS 5D Mark ll and a Canon XA-10 and heading straight to the seafront. Simonsen's footage shows what he described as "millions and millions" of hermit crabs participating in their annual mass movement.
