Swarms of pretty much anything are scary to see swarming, terrifying when the swarm is coming towards you and totally panic inducing when the swarm actually makes contact with your body.
But thanks to this amazing(ly unsettling) footage shot by Jesús Pineda of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) you can just watch the massive swarm of red crabs scuttle along the Hannibal Bank Seamount off the coast of Panama.
This video documents a few significant discoveries- the red crabs had never been seen so far south (they typically hang out around Baja California), and nobody had ever documented red crabs swarming before.
It's almost like the crabs knew Jesús Pineda and his team were coming...
