You know that hermit crab you had in elementary school? The one you so rudely neglected? Well, it told its cousin on you–its 9-pound, three-foot-wide cousin the coconut crab. This thing has everything: wildly powerful claws, the ability to invade your nightmares, and a penchant for coconuts and sometimes kittens. Learn more in the video above!
Editor’s note: No kittens were harmed in the making of this week’s episode of Absurd Creatures.
Also, I’m happy to hear from you with suggestions on what to cover next. If it’s weird and we can find footage of it, it’s fair game. You can get me at [email protected] or on Twitter at @mrMattSimon.
