This is a Thai Land Crab. It lives in the soil rather than in the ponbs.
It is much sought after, by humans and birds, as a food source, but seems to be a surviver. A reason for this might be its aggresive nature, and its willingness to deploy its fearsome weaponry, as shown in the second image which I shot after touching this individual I found ambling across the grass near our house.
