The Coconut Crab (Birgus latro) doesn't look anything at all like the Sea Turtle hatchlings I went to Sesoko Island looking for but, it was nice to meet him, anyway !

Great Photo Mike,
The crab kind of looks like an alien from a sci-fi flick. I wonder where the movie makers get their ideas? huh
Ryuku T. Cruise.
Ryukyu T. Cruise,
Thanks. I reckon you know a few movie makers. Huh ?
it DOES look sci-fi - what colors!
They do have some great color. The problem is, they only come out at night where you have to use flash.
