GIANT CRABS INVADE CENTRAL FLORIDA
A foot and half wide, digging burrows the size of a large mans hand, the giant land crabs of Central Florida are out and about looking for mates and spawning in the ocean. They can be quite intimidating with their size, but if left alone they are not aggressive. If one is quiet, in fact, you can watch them go about their daily business. The best place to find them is at the Barrier Island Sanctuary. Unfortunately, those not living in the Sancutuary can be found in people’s back yards, garages and smashed on the interstate. It is daily on the news about being careful while driving becuase of the crabs. According to Nichole Perna, with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, says the crabs are tasty but she does not recommend chasing them down and trying to grab them. It is illegal to remove them from the sanctuary.
