    No, not that I have found.  While a crab bite is painful, they seldom do more than draw a little blood.  I have attached an article that gives great detail on how to handle crabs and avoid being pinched or bitten.

    The coconut crab could easily remove a finger with its claws which can lift up to 64 lbs and cut open coconuts. The Coconut Crab, also known as the Birgus Latro is the largest terrestrial arthropod.
