Coconut Crab (Birgus latro) is the largest terrestrial arthropod in the world. It is known for its ability to crack coconuts with its strong pincers in order to eat the contents.
The second photo gives you a good idea of how large these crabs are – a coconut crab is seeking food from a black trashcan.

    wow… it looks totally like a facehugger


    Reminds me of the Hatch lings from the Alien Movie’s minus the kick ass tail


    funkyGod: Wrong
    LeeHarveyOswald: Agreed.

    How do you do the sarcasm symbol again?

    Nemo Intermundorum

    Holy fucking shit, the zerg have finally invaded. Quick, hide your vespene gas.


    Looks tasty.


    If I ever encountered that in real life, I am relatively certain I would flee with all due alacrity, while screeching like a little girl.


    I have to agree with you, I would run and not stop running untill my heart went BLEH. Might tackle it with a long range rifle, but I would miss and just anger it.


    so whys it have to be a BLACK trashcan?


    Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
    Seriously, those things are HUGE.


    flintlocke: now THAT would be funny, seeing as how that thing probably has a top speed of about, oh, .04 mph.

    crabs be cool, they be the angry old men of the sea.


    Jesus Fucking Christ, it’s a crab, get in the car!
    Where are these things anyway?




    “So now we have to battle this giant crab…and we can hit it’s weak spot for MASSIVE DAMAGE.”

    …On an unrelated note, I wanna pick one of those up and take it to Red Lobster and be like “Prepare this shit, bitches. I expect complimentary lemonade and cheddar biscuits for showing you your next billion dollar idea.”


    I hear these are crawling all over Tiki’s pubes. I wouldn’t know though.

    But that’s what I hear.

    tiki god

    you should know. is that ointment working for you as well as it’s working for me?


    The Invid are coming! The Invid are coming! Grab yer crowbars and lemons! The Invid are coming!


    The second picture- The tail looks like a hamburger.

    Now you can’t stop focusing on that.

    nyokki: This.


    I’m scared shitless of giant spiders… and yet this doesn’t bother me… does that make me insane?


    He come round my house, I kill it!


    Great… now I know what’ll be in my nightmares for the next month or two.


    Sikras: Damn you! Damn you to hell.

    LukeV1-5: What does that mean? “This”


    aarpie: I’m gonna go w/…yes.

    Looks just like the Combine Dropship from Half-Life 2. Go look it up.


    In the future Coconut Crabs rule the world and we(Humanity) are their minions.


    I bet Coconut Crabs are tasty with all that coconut sugar in their meat. Too bad I am allergic to shellfish now. 🙁


    Cook Islands, Guam, Micronesia.

    nyokki: It means “I agree with this statement. Either it is stating a fact which I am affirming, or it is asking a question which I also wish to ask”.
    Puulaahi has answered this question, hurrah.


    Shit Fuck! that thing is huge! Like, really huge, I imagine this thing could kill someone!


    holy crab cakes this shit is bigg





    That first photo is mine. Where on earth did you get it from?


    Seen the second photograph before but was told that it was a life sized fake?


    dude if this thing can crack open coconuts, human skulls should be not too hard either

    do not go to sleep with the window open of these f.ckers will get you


    Kalil: That would actually be funny.


    In the future, (even more) giant coconut crabs will be ridden into battle to crack open tank armor.

    On an unrelated note, this would be the most awesome pet ever…that didn’t want to eat your flesh.


    : are you sure that this thing wont attack you in the middle of the night for a bite? I would be careful.


    frogurtx: Yeah that’s kinda what i was thinking… big tasty crablegs… And those pincers… Mighty meaty lookin’… Add some garlic butter and were in business…


    Phyreblade: I’m assuming there’s a reason why they’re not used for meat. Are there a lot of them? Are they protected? Perhaps not good quality meat?


    They’re protected on Christmas Island at least. They’re hunted to endangerment on many other islands.

    Apparently they are a delicacy, but it does depend a lot on what they eat. If they’ve been eating good things like coconuts, then they’re yummy, if they’ve been eating certain types of weeds, then they’re not.

    They’re cooked in many parts of asia and served up.


    Sweet! My instincts were correct… I shall nao farm them and feed them the sweetest coconuts I can find… Huge sweet, savory crab legs, here I come… 😀
