Amelia Earhart Eaten by Coconut Crabs?

Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart is a great mystery. She, who attempted to circumnavigate the globe, disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. A group of researchers claims to have found the very spot where she mysteriously vanished and says that she landed on an atoll called Nikumaroro – part of the Phoenix Islands, Kiribati.

And where is the body? According to Richard Gillespie, TIGHAR’s executive director, "If Amelia died on Nikumaroro, her body was eaten by crabs. That's pretty much a given.” Coconut crabs are said to be living in the Nikumaroro. They are the largest land-living athropod which have huge claws which can actually break open a coconut in half, thus the name.

Only the Coconut Crabs Really Know Where Amelia Earhart Is Jaunted
