THE COCONUT CRAB

Birgus latro also known as the coconut crab is the largest terrestrial arthropod in the world. They can grow up to a leg span of 3 ft. It sometimes takes 120 years to reach it’s full size. It’s also known as the robber crab due to its propensity for stealing silverware and pots and pans.

They are endemic to islands in the Pacific & Indian ocean. The coconut crab eats anything it can get its claws on. It’ll go after fruit, vegetation, and carrion: dead birds and other coconut crabs. It really loves coconuts & will use it’s massive pinchers to crack one open. 

While you might perceive them as a threat because of it’s size, humans are a larger threat to this species. Human encroachment has thrown their food chains into chaos and they are disappearing rapidly. (Source) (Japanese Spider Crab)

THE FRENCH ANGEL

Maurice Tillet also known as the French Angel, was a professional wrestler. As a child he was nicknamed “French Angel” for his angelic face. But when Tillet turned 17, he began to notice swelling in his feet and hands. The doctor diagnosed with acromegaly - a condition usually caused by a tumor on the pituitary gland. This results in bone overgrowth and thickening.

He wanted to become a lawyear but his acromegaly prevented him from doing that. He served as an engineer in the French navy for 5 years. Tillet met a professional wrestler in 1937 who convinced him to join the business. He won many heavy weight championships. Unfortunately, he died on 1954 from a heart disease. (Wiki Page)

Up until I was about six
years-old, and
figured out I wasn’t crazy
for not liking
it, my father
and I would wrestle.
We’d play on his
bed, and all
was fine and
dandy, but
it usually ended
with him
putting a pillow
over
my face and
pinning me down
so that I was
unable to
move or breathe.
And I would
scream and
panic and lose
breath from
screaming and
struggling, and would
be waiting
to die.
Then he’d pull the
pillow
away, laughing. But
seeing that I was
crying, would
get angry and
say, “I was just
playin’ with you. You kniw
I wouldn’t hurt
you!”
Then he’d chase me away
disgusted.
I’d wander away feeling
confused.
Upset at myself for
being scared. For making
him so upset by
not getting the
joke.

I was featured on colossal today, very exciting.

Woah this is amazing. 

I play two parts in tonight’s film, one a gentleman, the other a gentleman possessed by the spirit of an evil warlock.
