The 'pedia says it can be eaten and is in fact so tasty it's become rare on some islands.

It also reports, in the unfortunate event that one of them nips you and won't let go,

Are the soft or hard shell. If soft, get me a coconut crab, a grill and bacon and I'll have coconut crab a la Fred.

Any crab is soft shell, if you catch it at the right time, just after molting.
