The south shore of Oahu has been inundated by millions of mysterious sea creatures. The pea-sized animals are washing ashore all along the beach and some have even crawled up on the boards of surfers out in the water.
Even the local biologists aren’t sure what to make of it. The animals are a larval form of a crab, but which species they belong to is still unknown. The biologists at Waikiki Aquarium are taking care of some of them and hoping to keep them alive long enough to determine their adult form. They don’t yet know what they eat or where they came from, but hopefully they’ll be able to learn more as the crabs grow.
