Kenny isn't your average crab, he's a little (coco)nuts! As the largest living arthropod in the world, coconut crabs are also called robber crabs because they're known to steal things from people laying on the beach. Like other crabs, coconut crabs are scavengers, so Kenny flicks his antennae to enhance his reception. 40% of their brain is used for smell, so these charismatic crabs can smell food over long distances. At the Zoo, Kenny's diet consist of raw shrimp, fruits and veggies, coconut (of course), nuts and seeds, and small mammals, like mice.
