The great crab migration of Cuba is under way! Each year millions of the creatures scuttle across the country to mate at the Bay of Pigs, with photos capturing their perilous journey

  • The migration causes concern to drivers who try to swerve in an often futile attempt not to kill the crabs
  • The crustaceans leave the forest and head to the Bay of Pigs to mate at the beginning of the spring rains 
  • The sight of them crossing the road is a wonder for tourists and other first-time onlookers

Every year in Cuba, millions of crabs emerge from the forest at the beginning of the spring rains and head for the waters of the Bay of Pigs, crossing streets and highways on a perilous journey to mate and reproduce.

Now under way, the migration causes concern to drivers who try to swerve in an often futile attempt not to kill the crustaceans.

The crabs are a nuisance to residents, but the sight of them crossing the road is a wonder for tourists and other first-time onlookers.
