They can make people sick if we eat them. Not sure about crabs tho.

Here is AussieJJ's guide to plants:

Monstera adansonii? Or Monstera deliciosa? (Common name is pretty interchangeable)

I think adansonii would be fine, but deliciosa has the potential to grow large, even dwarf varieties. I dont think they have any potential concerns, but will look it up and form a better judgment.

Edit: it contains oxalates. A common toxin in many plants. I forgot to include it in my guide, but here's a previous post regarding my opinion on oxalates.
