Coconut Crabs with Mark Laidre

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Mark Laidre with a coconut crab Coconut Crab

Dartmouth biologist Mark Laidre will give an informal talk on the coconut crab, Birgus latro, the world's largest terrestrial invertebrate.  Mark will show photos and videos that he took while studying coconut crabs on a National Geographic expedition to earth's largest coral atoll in the middle of the Indian Ocean.  Learn about the critical importance of conserving these amazing creatures as we continue to learn more about their fascinating behavior, ecology and evolution.  This talk is appropriate for older kids, teens, and adults. 
Read an interview Mark did with The Dartmouth last year about his research regarding these animals.
