Coconut crab


A very large terrestrial hermit crab


Known to be cited on coconut forests but my dog found it in our backyard using the sardine can as their home instead of coconut husks


From what i read, their numbers are dwindling.

@Ydre i understand you perfectly,i have the same feelings when i began on Project Noah,my first goal was to know and understand the behavior of all the creatures that lived in our backyard :-) and it was a huge surprise,we have been able to spot much more life than we would imagine.

@AntónioGinjaGinja thank you for welcoming me! I am thrilled to have found this site. Ever since the quarantine, my mom started to assemble a garden and after that, we have found numerous creatures that are entirely new to us in our backyard, sometimes just passing by, sometimes taking advantage of the plants.

It seems so much a waste to ignore those but I'm really glad to be able to share them now!

Hello Ydre and welcome to the Project Noah community!
