Coconut Crab

This animal is claimed to be the biggest living land-dwelling arthropod. In fact, this crab can reportedly drown in water. To me, its name sounds more like a fantastic dinner.

    Wow! What an exceptional creature! Although the coconut crab seems to have gotten a little large for their own good, I find it incredible that a crab, which is predominately thought of as a sea creature, has the ability to climb trees. This is certainly one of the most exotic and “epic” members of the animal kingdom I have encountered. Here’s a list of other animals i have found to be fascinating as well: http://listverse.com/2008/02/14/top-10-evolutionarily-unique-animals/
