Scientist in Japan have found the grip of a coconut crab is similar to that of a lion’s bite.

They measured the grip of different crabs and found that the coconut crab is the most powerful.

The projects lead scientist, Shin-ichiro Oka said that this puts the coconut crabs claws strength higher than most other land hunters.

Marine biologist Shin-ichiro Oka and his team did strength tests on 29 wild coconut crabs on the Japanese island of Okinawa.

The coconut crab uses its powerful claws for a number of things, but mainly for eating.

The powerful creatures are fierce and their claws are used to kill smaller crabs to eat and also to crack open hard food like coconuts.
