Coconut crab, aka the palm crab or robber crab. Worlds largest land dwelling arthropod, weighing in up to 9lbs. Across the south pacific islands. Only humans and other coconut crabs are a threatto them. Considered a delicacy and an aphrodisiac, endangered on any island where humans also live.

Steph, is that an actual photo of an Arabian? It is a gorgeous animal.
