We’d admire these dog-sized crabs, if we weren’t so busy screaming!

We’d admire these dog-sized crabs for being good at recycling, if we weren’t so busy screaming | Grist.

Good thing they don’t swarm like army ants!

I wouldn’t worry too much. They are endangered. 🙁

Probably because they’re pretty good eating. At least the islanders where the crabs can be found do like to eat them when they can still find them.

They are pretty scary to watch a bunch of huge crabs like these crawling around the beach where you’re trying to get a tan. I mean they do get pretty damn big! Luckily, they PREFER to eat coconuts. 😉
