Christmas Island is an island in Queensland, Australia, which is now known as Crab Island. Millions of red crabs visit this island every year and can be seen everywhere in the forest, house, bus station, etc. When the crabs reach the streets, they turn them into blood. Sometimes these crabs are destroyed by passing vehicles.

Australia is one of the countries with the most islands and has beautiful nature. Christmas Island, located in southeast Australia, is one of these islands. Discovered on Christmas 1643, the island sees millions of red crabs migrate from the forest to the beach every year to breed. At the beginning of the rainy season, these crabs migrate in groups and turn the land of this island red. This migration happens simultaneously throughout Christmas Island and is one of the most spectacular scenes in the world. Migration of red crabs takes between 5 and 7 days.

Snake Island is an island off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean and is located 33 km from the bay of São Paulo.
The area of this place reaches about 430 thousand square meters, located at a height of 206 meters above sea level. It has a moderate climate and a green cover similar to dense forests, which has made snakes able to surprise their prey by hiding among trees and plants. About 100,000 years ago, this island was separated from America due to the rise of the sea level. Because of this, snakes were trapped there and continued to live. This has caused this island to become one of the forbidden places that tourists are not allowed to visit, and only researchers and research teams can be present on this island to collect their data.

According to the research, about 2000 poisonous snakes live on this island, among which the golden viper is the most toxic and dangerous. About 90% of the deaths from snake bites in Brazil were due to the poisonous bite of this snake. It should be mentioned that the venom of this viper is 3 to 5 times more deadly than other snakes. According to locals, 1 to 5 snakes live in each square meter. The primary food source for these snakes is migratory birds because there is almost no other food source. The exciting thing about this island is that they have seen other species, including the giant tarantula and the big tegu lizard.
