Crab Behavior Minute
It is interesting how crabs think and work together. I've gone crabbing on the west coast. You can put a crab in a bucket about 12 inches deep and it will easily reach up over the lip of the bucket and succeed in climbing out. But an interesting thing happens when you have 2 or more crabs in the same bucket. As the first crab reaches up to pull itself out and starts to succeed, the other crabs reach up to pull the other crab back into the bucket. They will each take turns trying to climb out while the other crabs spend their time pulling the crab that is having success back down into the bucket.
Are you a crab?
