Earth is more bizarre than you can ever imagine.
1. Christmas Island’s Red Crabs:
Each year an estimated 43 million land crabs migrate to lay their eggs in the ocean.
Authorities close most of the island’s roads during the migration, which normally takes at least a week.
2. Monarch butterflies:
The eastern North American population is notable for its southward late summer/autumn migration from the USA and Canada to Mexico, covering thousands of kilometers.
No individual butterfly lives through the whole migration. Female monarchs lay eggs and their offspring continue the migrations.
3. Surreal spiderwebs:
Fleeing torrential floodwaters near Wagga Wagga, Australia, thousands of spiders cover fields with cobwebs.
4. The Sardine Run:
occurs from May through July when billions of sardines move north along the east coast of South Africa. Their sheer numbers create a feeding frenzy along the coastline.
5. Tanzania’s Lake Natron:
Tanzania’s Lake Natron: a salt lake fed by mineral-rich hot springs that is the only regular breeding area in East Africa for the 2.5 million lesser flamingoes.
