large crab with one large claw, light purplish color
grass near the coast
I nearly stepped on this huge crab as we walked back to our boat after a long hike. Our hike lasted longer than anticipated and it got dark on our hike back to the boat. Not only were there huge crabs hidden in the grass, there were forest elephants in the area that could be dangerous if we surprised them in the dark.
