Well attended Hermit crab shell swap party!
Large. med. small.
everyone gets naked and tries on new shells.
This is what is currently going on at Rojo Lounge And Market @ Azul Resort Belize at night - thousands of hermit crabs migrate here every year at exactly the same time at the same spot each year, mid July, to fight, mate or whatever it is they do and for some reason only do it in such concentration here. Maybe they heard about Chef Jeff's incredible cooking..... Definitely something to come and see!
There are some in close proximity to the north and south, but nowhere near as dense a concentration as at Rojo. Last year you could barely find a place to put your feet on the beach without stepping on one.
