Thai crabs, not what you think...

Hi folks,

Long shot I know but this sucker came at us when we were walking down to Hellfire Pass in Thailand this week.  

It was a long way from water and no one here seems to know what it is.  Had a look on the interwebs as well and can't seem to figure it out.

I am hoping Glenn's fish identification superpowers extend to Thai land crabs but has anyone else been chased by one of these before?

You might be onto something there Hedgehog, it was crafty like citizen snips!

I reckon it might be a rice field crab, thanks for your help folks.
