Researchers measure coconut crabs’ remarkable squeezing force

A coconut crab can easily crack open hard-shelled coconut, thanks to the remarkable pinching or crushing power of the creature's scary claws. Known to biologists as Birgus latro, coconut crabs eat whatever they can get their strong claws on.

To measure coconut crabs' pinching power, Shin-ichiro Oka and colleagues from the Okinawa Churashima Foundation in Japan measured the crushing power of 29 crabs on the Okinawa Island with the help of a sensor.
