Hermit Crab Migration

(vimeo link)

Millions of hermit crabs were observed on the move, carrying their homes on their backs at Nanny Point in the Virgin Islands. The music makes their trip seem like an epic quest! Where are they going? What do they hope to find there? I had no idea, so I looked around and found an article that explained:

Take the hermit crabs in the Virgin Islands. The adults are terrestrial, but the larvae develop in the sea. The adults must migrate to the waters edge in order to reproduce and release their eggs into the water.
