I have a friend in AUS whose uncle is a fisherman. She told me a story that he told her; don't know if it's true, but it's funny.
The uncle was in his boat somewhere in the Solomons one day and saw what appeared to be a man lying in the sand, moving along the beach somehow.
He went ashore and found a drunk guy, passed out, being dragged by a few of the coconut crabs, presumably for dinner.
Sounds like an urban legend, doesn't it?
She also had a story about a woman who put her hand in one of those crab's burrows and had it cut off. THAT one I do believe.
