Tree-climbing soldier crab, St. John, US Virgin Islands

Imaging yourself walking along through the forest, high and dry above the water, and all of a sudden you find yourself face to face with a crab the size of a grown man's first, slowly working its way along the trunk of a tree at eye level.  The soldier crabs of St. John pop up all over the island in many different unexpected places.
