Are there any crabs that only live on land?

    There are several species of land-dwelling crabs, most of them living on tropical islands or in tropical coastal habitats. In fact, the biggest land-dwelling invertebrate in the world is the coconut crab, which can weigh as much as 38 pounds. Due to their roles as predators of certain plant species and food for other animals, land crabs have been shown to be highly important to the survival of coastal tropical ecosystems. Scientists have urged that conservation of land crab populations be considered as an essential part of broader plans for conserving tropical environments.
