This kinda reminds of the time two families of geese held up traffic for like half and hour.
(to looneyman12`s post) That`s freaking scary looking.

yep er, you see this was interesting when david attenburough did a documentory on them. but a post about red crabs on i-a-b.... that`s just plain wrong. i think they`re running out of things to show in this site, hence this crap and all the repeating posts

Their instincts amaze me. doing the same thing for hundreds of years, even as humans build all sorts of crap in their way.

I wouldn`t want to live there, honestly. Like imagine going to bed "Lalala..," then waking up covered in crabs! ahh!. And that would be odd to see, like your talking on the phone, "Yeah i know! it was s-ahh! theres a crab on my leg! ahh!" *runs away and climbs a tree*. Crabs are freaky, but there finger lickin` good!
