‘Pretty gruesome’: giant coconut crab seen hunting birds

Hi Anthea,
There are lots of big Robber Crabs on Christmas Island! Lets hope eating
birds doesn’t occur to them. We were there during the red crab migration and
did see plenty of robber crabs eating red crabs that had been squished on
the road.

Can anyone ID the unfortunate Booby in the picture?
Do Robber Crabs occur on Christmas Island? Let’s hope not!
