The British Indian Ocean Territory is home to the largest terrestrial invertebrate alive today – the coconut crab – a relative of the land hermit crab that can have a 90 cm leg span and can climb coconut trees. In this film, we follow naturalist Stewart McPherson on a life-long mission to observe full-size coconut crabs in their natural habitat.
