STERLING SILVER BERMUDA ICONS
Land crabs used to be in such abundance in Bermuda, that they were considered pests, burrowing holes along cliffs, beach trails and lawns. There were mass migrations across the South Road during the summer months when they returned to the sea to release their eggs. Unfortunately, these brightly colored red and orange crustaceans are seen less and less these days.
Land crabs are primarily vegetarians, eating tender leaves, fruits, berries, flowers, and some vegetables. Occasionally they will eat insects. They like to stay near the water to keep their gills moist, making Bermuda´s South Shore an ideal habitat. Bermuda is the northern-most place where they are found.
