COCONUT CRABS
The coconut crab is a large edible land crab related to the hermit crab, and are found in the tropical Indian and Pacific Oceans . They eat coconuts for a living! How would you like to be on an island and come across a crab that is more than 3 feet (1m) from head to tail and weighs up to 40 pounds (18kg), with a pair of large pincers strong enough to open coconuts! They can climb trees too, but they only eat coconuts that have already fallen to the ground. Coconut crab meat has been considered a local delicacy.

They are. U have to make ur swimingpool in to a tank for them. May be a cool idea, and have 2 sharks and a bluering octupus in there and have ur mother in law come over for a swim :biggrin:. Just a joke.
