    The coconut crab is the largest terrestrial arthropod in the world, with a weight of up to 4.1 kg . It can grow to up to 1 m (3 ft 3 in) in length from each tip to tip of the leg.

    My son was stationed at the military base in Cuba, and he has pictures of them hanging on the side of garbage cans, those big metal ones. And they cover half the can. Scary critters.
