Ginormous Facts About Coconut Crabs

Coconut crabs are crazy cool looking, but they're also 3 feet long, weigh nine pounds and tear coconuts open with their claws, so if you see one in the wild it's probably best to keep your distance.

And even though you'll want to get a closer look despite knowing they can literally shred your skin you may want to reconsider- because they're also known as robber crabs, so they might snatch your shiny keys.

Coconut crabs are also extremely antisocial critters, living up to the "hermit" title better than most of their hermit crab cousins, so if you see a coconut crab waving at you it's trying to tell you to stay away!
