Have you seen the coconut crab? It's the stuff of nightmares
No no no NO.
If there is anything I despise, it's large eight legged creepy crawlies. Spiders of any size actually terrify me... so you can imagine my fright when I came across this creature on my feed today.
Introducing the coconut crab. Found on the Indonesian Islands, mainland Australia and Madagascar, this larger than life crab is giving us serious chills.

The coconut crab weighs up to 4 kgs and can grow to 3ft 3inches in length but it only reaches its maximum size after 40 - 60 years.
Heard a commotion outside. Found this asshole climbing all over the tools. The cat refuses to acknowledge the threat this coconut crab poses pic.twitter.com/YthDYVyTDw

As unusual and all as they are... I'm still petrified.
Coconut crabs grow as big as dogs and open coconuts with claws nearly as strong as a lion’s jaws. It’s now been shown they also climb trees and hunt birds. pic.twitter.com/Tgw5HuNCnn
