The largest living invertebrate to walk on earth has been catching attention as of late after a video surfaced of one stalking a seagull, as well as the theory which has been floating around saying they ate Amelia Earhart.
Coconut crabs are seriously the stuff of nightmares. I can't believe these things really exist, and are just walking around out there like dogs and cats and humans.

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— Quite Interesting (@qikipedia) November 13, 2017
This is a coconut crab. They grow up to 3 feet in length. A group of them is called a "nightmare".— Jay Kristoff (@misterkristoff) August 25, 2017
