Giant 50ft crab appears at Whitstable harbour

A bizarre aerial photo showing what looks like a huge crustacean has been circulating the Internet.
The picture, which was sent in to the website 'Weird Whitstable', shows the harbor from above with what appears to be a giant crab sitting just below one of the docks.

The image has been featured on a number of mainstream news sites and has generated something of a buzz on social media with Internet users speculating over whether it's an optical illusion, a clever hoax or an actual creature.
Quinton Winter, the owner of the site the image was published on, claims that he witnessed the huge crab himself during the summer. "It had glazed blank eyes on stalks, swivelling wildly and it clearly was a massive crab with crushing claws," he said.

All you guys who want a crab leg or sandwich, just be warned that this crab is of the inedible kind and you would be poisoned if you ate some.
