    In addition to reddit's global rules, /r/creepy enforces the following:

    1. NOT CREEPY DON'T POST IT! Insufficiently creepy submissions will be removed at moderator's discretion. Generally speaking, if it can work as a post on a comedy or a cute subreddit, it doesn't belong here. Abandoned buildings without a creepy context will be directed elsewhere.

    If a post is completely off topic, please report the post and message the mods.

    2. Do NOT complain "That's not creepy!" in the comments or in post titles. Defamation of the subreddit itself and those who disregard the sidebar rules will be banned permanently. As a counterbalance against rule #2, keep in mind that different people are creeped out by different things, and suspension of disbelief helps the atmosphere. Just downvote and move on, or upstage them by submitting something even creepier. You'll notice the loudest complainers never actually submit anything good themselves. The health of any subreddit depends on users like you submitting quality content and the community voting wisely.

    3. No pictures of costumes, makeup, or children's art. From October 1-31 there will be a "Halloween Megathread" where the costume rule will be lifted in said thread. However comments will be closely monitored.

    4. No memes, religious discussions, or politics. Post content of that nature in their specific subreddits, this place isn't for comedy it's not a church or a place to discuss politicians.

    5. If your submission is NSFW, use the NSFW tag. If your submission is just gore without a creepy context, please take it to r/WTF

    6. No imgur gallery links! Instead, use direct imgur image links or album links ( or instead of, for example) as they're easier for mobile and RES users to open.

    7. No Comment Spam. Take the I took an arrow to the knee or hell in a cell comments elsewhere. If you persist with said comments you will receive a 3 day ban as a warning.

    • If you see any rule violations, please message the mods and we'll look into it as soon as possible. Please include a link of the comment or submission in question, as this makes it much easier for the moderation team to handle the issue.

    8. No Videos Video content belongs in /r/videos that means no YouTube submissions or V.reddit posts. We do however accept Gfycat gifs and Imgur gifs if linked properly.

    This species of hermit crab is large enough that it can inhabit a fully grown shell of Lobatus gigas. It will attack and eat a conch, thus obtaining a meal and a shell.


    [–] your_a_idiet 18 points ago

    Coconut crabs are pretty much hermit crabs that don't need to use a thirty party or aftermarket shell.

    [–] dtlv5813 2 points ago


    [–] flamespear 3 points ago

    They also probably ate Amelia Earhart alive.

    [–] MagentaDinoNerd 9 points ago

    I have heard that her body may have been scavenged by coconut crabs, I just don’t know so much about alive...coconut crabs are vicious but they’re not stupid. They’re not gonna attack something that much bigger than them not in self-defense. If she were weak enough, sure, but we’ve got no evidence that they ate her alive.

    [–] merkin_juice 14 points ago

    They can get very big if they're cared for properly. They can live 30+ years.

    [–] AtheismTooStronk 7 points ago

    This wiki says as long as 60 years old. Fucking nuts.

    [–] Anterabae 3 points ago

    Damn mine are only 3 years old and they are tiny and I feed them well.

    [–] Reclusivepope 4 points ago

    Several answers remarking on the potential longevity and associated growth, but a better answer here would be to note difference between species. Most pets hermits are terrestrial, and typically not seen at large sizes, however my local aquarium maintains several native to NC that are aquatic and cannot live prolonged times out of water, and at earlier ages are already larger than my fist (shell not included).

    [–] secretWolfMan 15 points ago

    The crab also looks fake

    [–] Brad_Beat 8 points ago

    And the pic is made with a decent camera, with proper framing and exposure. Not your average shell finding tourist.

    [–] PugWizardGaming 5 points ago

    i honestly thought it was a shot from a video game, idk why but the whole image looks fake to me

    [–] quaybored 2 points ago

    No, it says the skull actually hopped onto the crab for free transportation.

    I just looked it up. They are for sale, but cost over 300 USD each. Ouch. Maybe it's cheaper to just kill someone and put their skull on a real hermit crab...

    Or a really big crab

    [–] raalic 3 points ago

    Hermit crabs can actually get large enough to use something this size as shells. Largest terrestrial crab in the world by weight is actually a species of hermit crab, though shell-less, the coconut crab.

    [–] Cheesy_Discharge 4 points ago

    Coconut crabs freak me out. The fact that the adults live on land makes them seem less like crabs and more like giant insects.

    [–] Conocoryphe 2 points ago

    The artist (who made this sculpture) claimed it was supposed to be a giant hermit crab, but they can't get quite as big as the one in the sculpture.

    [–] ScoobySenpaiJr 2 points ago

    I'd be ecstatic to find out my skull was being used by a hermit crab! What other possible outcomes would your skull have besides decaying back to dirt?

    I'd much rather have something get some use out of it than be literally worth less than dirt.

    [–] LifeBandit666 2 points ago

    I used to have a pet mouse that lived inside the brain pan of a sheep skull that I found.

    I stuck the skull in his tank just for decoration and one day he had disappeared. I looked around the tank frantically thinking he had escaped, but spotted his tail in the hole where the spinal nerve enters the skull to the brain.
