'Crabzilla': The biggest crab ever seen in

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Still Waters
With its enormous legs and lethal claws, this monster of the deep is already the biggest crab ever seen in Britain.

But astonishingly, the arthropod - which measures a staggering 10ft from claw to claw - is still growing, and could live until it is 100.

Nicknamed 'Crabzilla' after the fictional giant monster, the Japanese Spider Crab has a body the size of a basketball and its legs can straddle a car. They will eventually measure a massive 15ft.

My word that's a big crab! blink.gif .

Still, bet it's dead chuffed to have been dragged out of its natural environment, manhandled and put on display for people to salivate 'ooh' and 'err' over. 100 years is a long time to live out in Birmingham of all places. Poor thing!

I'm surprised to see its not 2 pages of bad jokes involving eating the poor thing.

What an amazing creature. I didn't think they got so big.

I fail to see how that crab could straddle a car.

Eep! I remember seeing crabs that size when I was young, but I think I was just a lot, lot smaller!

Scary buggers.
