i wonder how they taste.
Steve Ross of the Ensenada boat Bad Dog sends this photo of a Coconut Crab found not in Mexican waters, unfortunately, but on dry land in tropical areas of the Indian and Eastern Pacific Oceans. The crab, with the scientific name of Birgus latro, is capable of eating coconuts by ripping open the three soft spots under the husk at the top of the fruit and reaching inside with its smaller claws, or actually cracking the coconut shell apart with its large claws. It lives only on land and drowns if put into water, and it apparently has enough brain power to figure out that garbage cans might contain a tasty meal. It is reportedly not itself tasty enough to be sold commercially, but is considered an aphrodisiac in some cultures. It is also called a "robber crab" due to its reputation for sneaking into houses and taking shiny metal objects such as spoons. If a crab's powerful claw should happen to clamp onto a finger, toe, or other sensitive body part, one reported way of persuading it to let go is to gently stroke its underbody with something soft such as a feather.

I thought about that for a moment too. I figured they'd taste good since they eat mostly coconuts.
yeah, not to mention how much meat must be inside their shell
