Don't be a crab


Scouter's Minute

It is interesting how crabs think and work. When catching crabs, you can place them in a bucket about 12-18 inches deep and if the crab is in there by itself, will easily reach up over the lip of the can and climb out. But an interesting thing happens when you have 2 or more crabs in the same bucket. As the first crab reaches up to pull itself out, the other crabs reach up to pull the other crab back into the bucket. They will each take turns trying to climb out while the other crabs spend their time pulling the crab that is having success back down into the bucket. Are you a crab?
