These Hermit Crabs Faced Each Other, Then Do Something Mind-Bending

Nature has infinite ways to amaze us. I suspect we haven’t even seen the tip of the iceberg of the intelligence it displays around us.

In nature, having the right home is an imperative criterion to stay alive, specially if you are a hermit crab. Hermit crabs are always looking to upgrade their mobile homes, or rather a bigger shell.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find a better ‘home’ on their own. However, these little creatures have developed an amazing group strategy to make the upgrade a lot easier, even if you’re a tiny crab. The video below reveals this amazing natural phenomena. I was totally blown away by this video.
