One day, all the crabs disappeared. People searched in the seas, oceans, lakes, rivers, rainforests. Not a single, live crab… only old shells. Crabs shed, or molt several times during their life. Their body keeps growing, but their shell doesn’t. So they throw off their old “suit” and hide. They sit there in silence until their new one grows. But why did every single crab molt on the same day? Where are they hiding?

Crabs dig burrows when they molt. Deep down in the sand, they’re protected from predators and bad weather. This time, something weird happened. They hid way deeper than ever before, so they had more time to grow. For 6 months, they’ve been sitting and waiting for their new shell to grow. And they grew so large that small shellfish and algae are just not enough, and they want more food… Okay, this is one more crazy what-if question for those who love hypothetical scenarios. So, what if our oceans were filled with giant crabs?
