Just remembered I took this pix

when hubby and I traveled to Sulawesi (Manado)

a few years back.

This crab is the biggest crab I’ve ever seen !!

It’s a Coconut Crab….in Latin : Birgus Latro.

THE Crab is alone at the bottom of the plastic pail..

two Coconut Crabs wouldn’t fit in there !

We ate one…but I dunt noe ….

maybe it was the cooking ?

didn’t leave any impression…

  1. Alas, bigger isn’t always tastier.
    But that’s sure one beautiful bucketful!

    • Hi Silver !!

      (wow…that sounds like a Cowboy shout ?
      where have I heard it b4 ?)

      Yep….ur right…depends on the herbs put with it…
      the bucket is a medium size one…not a child’s play bucket….

  2. That`s the most colorful crab I`ve ever seen!

    • I agree….colorful and scary, to tell the truth….

      • If you buy a live crab from a bucket of ice, and put it in the refrigerator, remind everyone that it’s alive; otherwise you might hear a blood-curdling scream in the middle of the night.

      • Hahaha…like in a movie…
