My mom asked if I was interested in seeing the new movie Amelia this weekend. I said no. Mostly this is due to the fact that I have seen Hilary Swank play so many disturbingly doomed characters, I can hardly look at her without feeling depressed. And I don't have an overwhelming interest in Amelia Earhart either. But this is pretty cool. They may have found evidence of what happened to her. She may have crash landed on a deserted island and been eaten by these guys:



The coconut crab, Birgus latro, is the largest terrestrial arthropod on earth (there are bigger ones that stay in the sea). It can grow up to 3 feet in length and weigh 11 pounds. It can climb trees. It has claws that can snap a broom handle. It has to, because it eats coconuts. This makes the crabs very delicious. Which is one of the reasons why their populations are declining.

This cute British dude has a whole website about them.
