    They'll take your finger off. Pat at own risk. But they're odd little creatures (also known as Robber Crabs)

      Well no... they're actually rather quite big. The biggest land crabs I've ever come across.

      i caught a robber crab in goa it was on a coconut palm at shoulder height,we first attempted to lever it off with a brush shaft which it snapped like a twig,i had to use my scuba tank to knock it off, it was very tasty ,like a cross between mud crab and lobster with a slightly nutty taste.it was 19 inches (51cms) long and weighed 4.2kg.
