?Pretty gruesome?: giant coconut crab seen

Hi Anthea,

Judging from the red feet, I reckon it’s a red-footed booby. :)

They have been documented breeding on those islands.

Cheers

Greg

Can anyone ID the unfortunate Booby in the picture?

Do Robber Crabs occur on Christmas Island?? Let’s hope not!
