  1. Crabs climbing plants? Somehow I've never heard of that behavior, interesting. Posted 2 years ago
    1. Yes, Ferdy. As you can see in the picture, it was perched on a leaf, and this leaf was not near the ground, it was like around 1 meter height.

      Have you heard of Coconut crab - Birgus latro? Those guys can grow up to 1 meter length!
