Holy Crab! These Arthropods Can Grow Up To One Meter Long

In Stories

Christmas Island, a territory of Australia is home to more crabs than humans. Mark Pierrot, a holidaymaker is going to return home with a snap of a lifetime after posing with the world’s largest coconut crab.

Mark bravely picked up the massive coconut crab and held it for the camera as he visited the jungle on Christmas Island. The giant crustacean measures up to 3 feet in length and weighs up to 9 lbs.

Coconut crabs are also known as ‘robber crabs,’ probably because they steal everything. With huge claws powerful enough to crack coconuts, they are the largest land-living arthropod in the world.

These monsters can climb trees as well as drown in water and live to be up to 70 years. Check out the video of this amazing creature below.
