I'd like to see it in size comparison to an average Alaskan crab. I need to know if I have a pot big enough to put them in.

Okay Biff... breakout the pots. I found an article which states these crabs are 1 metre in length (3.28 feet) and the largest of the Alaskan king crabs, the red king crab, is 5.9 feet. Does that help?

There are several species of commercially harvested crab in the arctic; king, snow, golden and probably others. It's not a stretch that there would be species found in antarctic waters, I fail to see the big deal unless this is an introduced species.

If you think that look like a creep creature ... that is terrifying... If you thought that was a creepy creature you really should have a look at this sea-lice, the Isopod. It makes you wanna throw up and scratch yourself all over at the same time. Imagine a bunch of those crawling along in your bed when you wake up.
