Strange Animal Phenomena

Migration of crabs (Christmas Island, Australia)
The phenomenon of migration leaves us with prints such as large mammals in Kenya, zebras, antelopes, wildebeest … moving in huge herds in search of green shoots, after the rainy season. But there are migrations that, due to their protagonists’ smallness, are more than curious. This is the case of the red crab on Christmas Island, Australia. Precisely, the migration of the red crustacean begins at Christmas time, when they move from the tropical forest of the island to the coast of the Indian Ocean to reproduce. The amount of crabs in motion is such that the island is already accustomed to the closure of roads and train tracks (to avoid crushing animals) for at least a week. Awesome.

Starling flocks
How does this movement occur? Out of fear In reality, the flight accompanied by these birds responds to a dissuasive way of giving up, in front of birds of prey or any threat. Given this, they practice the saying of “union is strength” flying with complete coordination. His sense of perception is such that any change in speed in one of the components of the flock is transmitted to the rest by pure mimesis, simultaneously. Pure survival Almost magic.

An island with swimming pigs (Bahamas)
In the Bahamas there is an area dotted with 360 islands (cays) in the Exuma district. In one of them, uninhabited, when arriving embarked there is something that does not end up fitting: on the beach there are pigs that when they see a boat approaching with tourists, they launch to swim and in some way, to give a nice welcome: In this paradise We would all expect to see idyllic beaches, reefs, explore dive sites and even caverns, but I think few would expect to sail and approach the coast to receive a community of swimming pigs. It happens in Big Major Cay, or better known as Pig Beach, a small island home of the “swimming pigs.” There is not much accurate information about how pigs ended up living in this paradise, perhaps abandoned by a boat. The funny thing is that over the years, the pigs adapted to beach life, and today they got used to approaching boats with tourists traveling there just to see them and of course, give them something to eat.

Monarch butterfly migration (USA and Mexico)
Imagine a tree completely covered with butterflies until you see the branches bend by weight or walk among the wings of hundreds of thousands of (beautiful) insects. This is what happens annually from August to October, with the displacement of monarch butterflies over 4,000 kilometers from Canada and the United States to the temperate forests of Michoacán, in Mexico, and also to areas of California (Santa Cruz and Pacific Grove, fundamentally) to hibernate. The color show, between the black and orange of its wings, is sweeping.

Dolphin Beach (Australia)
Shark Bay is located in the westernmost part of Australia and is in broad strokes, a huge bay enclosed by narrow peninsulas and dotted with numerous islands. The ecosystem conditions are unique, giving rise, for example, to the most extensive seagrass meadow in the world, and to the survival of species perfectly adapted to the place, such as thousands of dolphins, sea cows known as dugongs, or the strange formations millenarian stromatolites. In Monkey Mia, an area within Shark Bay, another curiosity has been happening daily for four decades: bottlenose dolphins come to the coast accustomed to feeding by humans, a unique contact only produced in this part of the planet. In the 1960s, a fisherman began feeding the dolphins after returning from a fishing day. What was a simple habit, over time became an attraction for tourists.
