Very interesting! I don't think I would mess w/ it either. When I was a kid we had a large (slightly smaller than a tennis ball) hermit crab that could snap a pencil in two. I'd hate to think what that monster could do. Another animal I enjoy seeing pics of, but would rather not meet in person.

It says they are called that because they can open a coconut with those pinchers! I could see it being a threat to a cat, small dog or even a child if it felt threatened, but I don't think they are aggressive thank goodness.

I have never actually seen one in real life, they are more in the tropics up north, too cold down here for them, but apparently they really are huge and will easily take of a finger with those claws so not to be trifled with :smile:, not agressive as such but if you go picking them up and generally upsetting them then I suppose you could loose a finger or two!
