CRAB BLOWER

RED LAND CRAB

GECARCOIDE NATALIS

After drifting at sea, billions of baby red land crabs wash up on Christmas Island and head into the forest – but first they have to cross the road. Parks officers use leaf blowers to help clear the road, allowing residents to drive to work without crushing too many.
