The  baby red crabs are still returning to Christmas Island – The Cove has been busy with bubs, as well as east coast beaches Dolly Beach, Greta Beach, Ethel Beach and the resort beach.

These fantastic images from Dolly Beach show the spectacular scenes.

The babies will make their way to the forest to mature. In three years they’ll be ready to take part in the migration themselves!

One thought on “Baby red crabs continue to return

  1. Great to see all that. But who has been overworking Photoshop on the pics?!

    Can we assume that the big ‘return’ is because of the success you have with killing off ants? Or is it some other thing?
