You Wouldn’t Believe Who Ambushed A Team of Underwater Expedition

This is very very interesting. In a moment, you will be shocked.

A research team was studying marine biodiversity at the Hannibal Bank Seamount off the coast of Panama.

“As we slowly moved down to the bottom of the seafloor, all of the sudden we saw these things,” Jesús Pineda, a biologist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and chief scientist on the expedition, said in a statement.

“At first, we thought they were biogenic rocks or structures. Once we saw them moving – swarming like insects – we couldn’t believe it.”

They stumbled upon quite an underwater party: thousands of red crabs swarming en mass in low-oxygen waters just above the seafloor. Scuttling around at a depth of 385 meters (1,263 feet), the researchers think they were hiding from predators at the time.

See this video to believe it.
