Ah, nature. So relaxing and refreshing. Maybe you like to unwind by daydreaming about a warm and tropical beach island, imagining the wildlife.
Maybe some crabs? That sounds nice, right?
This horror is called a coconut crab because of their love of tearing apart coconuts with their terrorist claws.
These creepers climb to the top of lushly tropical, beautiful palm trees, snatch the coconuts off and descend back to earth with them.
And then they rip the coconuts apart. Although their penchant for coconuts earned this monster, the Coconut Crab, its name, it doesn't end there.
The Coconut Crab eats fruits, nuts, seeds and the nightmares of men.
They are vegetarians, but if they ever change their minds... watch out.
This guy knows he could take you. He won't, but he could.
Here they are extorting a dog.
They have nefariously adapted to life on land and are overtaking the islands around the Indian Ocean and some parts of the Pacific Ocean.
