Remember the Coconut Crab of several pages back?

It seems a biologist filmed a coconut crab climbing a tree and dislodging a dozing adult sea bird and then killing it with ease.

Fortunately this predator can not swim well and any migration seems to be storm induced.

Just another ordinary morning and you go out to put something in the trash... Hello there!




I have just learned that in Micronesia it is common for Coconut Crabs to be put on the fire alive. I don't think I could do that.


As far as I know, all crabs are cooked alive? .


Switzerland just made it illegal to boil a lobster while it is alive.

How might you euthanize a lobster? Typical for lower classes is to freeze, but in this case it would ruin the reason for killing it.

Tack hammer?

Electrocution? Maybe pre killed ones will now be worth more than live?

I see right off, one thing you can catch with this type of fishing. (hint:It has 4 legs)

this allows you cast a fishing line a thousand feet if you wish.

Since FACE isn't fishing might as well show something fishing. Does it count when the "fish" comes out of the water after the prey? Good thing these things don't get bigger and get a taste for humans. Or do they? Fighting against eight arms. Losing battle.

In the 1930's when Hemingway lived in Key
West, he would often take visitors out on
his big cruiser, the Pilar. They would get
into the Gulf Stream at just that time of
day when the sun lit the water a hundred
feet down. There was always a feeding
frenzy going on in the hot water of the
stream, every kind of creature eating
other creatures. It was a such a macabe
sight, many of Hemingway's passengers
would get ill and puke over the side. He
always got the biggest kick out of it
when that happened.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Interesting you posted this. When you did, I had just the day prior been daydreaming about fishing traps, designing one in my head as I slung the mail. This one's pretty ingenious. But I have to ask - wtf would a fish go up the bamboo? It doesn't seem to be baited. I can understand why it would continue up, as one it enters it can't back up. But why stick its head in in the first place?

/sigh. This thread makes me sad. I need to give it more attention this year.
