I know, I’ve written about Coconut Crabs before. Supposedly they’re harmless but now we’re getting conflicting reports that they may or may not have eaten Amelia Earhart alive. Damn that’s terrifying. It all started when somebody posted a video of one of these bad boys eating a goddamn freaking seagull and it’s grown from there. The Coconut Crab is a species of Terrestrial Hermit Crab, also known as the Robber Crab or Palm Thief. It is the largest land-living arthropod in the world and is at the upper size limit for terrestrial animals with exoskeletons in recent times. They can weigh of up to 9.0 pounds and can grow to up to 3 1/2 feet in length from leg to leg. Anywho, Coconut Crab.
