Artist's Description

Nayive to Christmas Island.

These titans of the crustacean world are the largest land crabs on earth. They have formidable pincers which could easily take off a finger, but they’re not quite as fearsome as they look. They live mostly by scavenging, which is why you often see them gathered along the roadside during the red crab migration, cleaning up the inevitable road-kills. It’s a food bounty for them, one of the reasons the population here is so large; in fact, it’s the largest in the world.
