Real-world information[edit]

A real coconut crab


The Coconut Crab, also known as the robber crab or palm-thief, is actually a species of hermit crab. Unlike hermit crabs most people are familiar with, once young Coconut Crabs reach maturity they develop a hard exoskeleton that negates the need for a separate shell. Despite its name coconuts are not a primary source of their diet, which mostly consists of fruits, seeds and nuts. They do, however, often climb coconut palms in order to escape predators including other coconut crabs. Because it is the largest land-dwelling crab, it is extensively hunted by humans and is only prevalent in areas where humans are not.
