Birgus latro also known as the coconut crab is the largest terrestrial arthropod in the world. They can grow up to a leg span of 3 ft. It sometimes takes 120 years to reach it’s full size. It’s also known as the robber crab due to its propensity for stealing silverware and pots and pans.
They are endemic to islands in the Pacific & Indian ocean. The coconut crab eats anything it can get its claws on. It’ll go after fruit, vegetation, and carrion: dead birds and other coconut crabs. It really loves coconuts & will use it’s massive pinchers to crack one open.
While you might perceive them as a threat because of it’s size, humans are a larger threat to this species. Human encroachment has thrown their food chains into chaos and they are disappearing rapidly. (Source)(Japanese Spider Crab)

Hi, admin of the Geekiary here. As I am the ONLY person who has access to the Polldaddy account and the ONLY person running this poll, I would like to clear up this rumor as it’s caused a lot of drama and unfairly put a cheating accusation on the In The Flesh fandom.
I was never spoken to privately. All conversations about botting were done publicly on Twitter and all were to confirm that there were NO bots detected in the poll. Whoever is stating that I gave this precise information about cheating in the Favorite Horror Themed TV Show poll was lying. There is only one admin of the website (me) and my top editors have nothing to do with this poll. At this time there are no bots detected and the “four IPs” information that is being floated around is COMPLETELY FALSE.
The only information you should trust is if it comes directly from the admin (again, that’s me and only me) through an official channel. That would be via Twitter, the Tumblr ask box, or email at TheGeekiary@Gmail.com. If you know who was spreading those false rumors, you can drop me a line at one of those three places.
It’s time to start planning for the holidays already!
Our hope is to collect some really good tasty treats, toys and squishy beds for homeless cats in shelters this holiday season! From now until December, we will be collecting items to mail to non-profit shelters so that homeless kitties can have the best holiday ever! Having comforting items while in a shelter can make a huge difference in the life of a homeless animal. A shelter’s main priority is keeping the cats healthy, so a shelter cat getting something special is really rare!
We have an Amazon Wishlist if you would like to pick out an item for a shelter kitty! We will also donate money to the shelters we mail gift boxes to! And we will throw in some of our handmade cat toys and plushes!
The number of places we will donate to will depend on how many gifts we can gather. The locations are also TBD, but you can always recommend places by contacting us email@example.com <3
Looking for gifts for your human companions? Our store donates half of each purchase to cat shelters and rescue groups. Thank you for your support, and remember to support your local shelters!!
Omg… My bf just set up a live feed of my snake room so I can watch them all the time. I can even rotate the camera to look anywhere in the room. It has night mode (as seen in this pic) so I can watch them even when the room light is off and all is dark!
I might catch some cool nocturnal behavior and see how active they really are when they think no one is watching… How exciting. I’m so happy!!
Why is your bf so cool wtf that is awesome
I don’t even know how he is this cool. He didn’t even tell me he was doing this either. He just set it up and surprised me.
He also set it up so that I can control the temperature of the room from my phone when I’m away from home in case anything goes wrong. He’s a wizard.
