Give each crab at least 3 shells slightly larger than the crab's current shell. When looking for shells check for holes, cracks and dents.   Generally, the crabs pinch nuts from coconut palms, and then feast on the broken remains below. A crab may also pull back the husk from an unbroken coconut and then pierce the soft “eye” with one of its pointed legs. The rest of the diet is as varied as that of their smaller relatives. Coconut Crabs are declining in portions of their range.
