Don't worry Bear. Apparently these things drown very easilly. So if you ever find yourself menaced by a Coconut Crab just go stand in a puddle. You'll be safe enough.

I found one of those in my pants. I kind of like the feel of it, so I let it stay.

Quite common here in the Philippines actually. I think it's a delicacy somewhere in the north, much like lobsters. I haven't eaten one though.

Now you know which country to avoid. Haha.

Which goes without saying that the fears of some people are well-founded. Lol.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
