Während der Nacht wurden - über eine Dauer von 14 Minuten - Liebesspiel und Kopulation von Birgus latro beobachtet (Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands). Bei der Kopulation kehren sich beide Partner die Ventralseiten zu, wobei das Weibchen auf dem Rücken liegt. Die Beine beider Partner sind ineinander verschlungen. Das Männchen wird von den Ambulatorextremitäten des Weibchens umarmt. Die Absetzung der Spermatophoren erfolgt auf der ventralen Coxa-Oberfläche der weiblichen Ambulatorbeine 2 und 3. Das Kopulationsverhalten von B. latro scheint weniger häufig vorzukommen, von kürzerer Dauer zu sein, und weniger visuelle und taktische Vorgänge zu umfassen als bei den meisten verwandten Arten.
