Coconut Crabs in the South Pacific.

Very interesting creature the Coconut Crab. The one below is a small one, maybe 4 pounds. Imagine an 18 pound Crab! This guy was on a leash for the next days dinner. You have to see and taste one. Delicious flavor. Just travel to the South Pacific, most any Tuomotu Islands and have the local villagers take you on a sunset exploration in search for a Coconut Crab! BBQ it along with a local pig. It has a Lobster flavor! Islands near Tahití, Fiji, Tonga, Bora Bora usually have these creatures climbing the palm trees in search of…you guessed it, Coconuts! Google it for more facts. Wikipedia has some good detail as well.
