This rare footage of a giant crab (Coconut Crab) attacking and killing a sea bird was caught on camera in Chagos Archipelago (British Indian Ocean Territory). This is an unusual behavior or at least an unknown behavior of this crab. We don’t know for sure if the bird attacked the crab, or the crab sneaked near the bird. We just saw the consequences of being held in the strong claws of the Coconut crab (Birgus latro).
