Another reason I would prefer to stay out of the ocean

All I can say is AHHHHHH! Look at that freakin' thing. It makes the facehuggers off of Alien look like a big wuss and it's 100 percent REAL.

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.

Okay so it lives like 2,500 feet under water but still, I'm not really thrilled with all the things that swim around in the ocean. I mean you don't see gigantic killer squirrels on land or something like that. We've got shut-ins like Bears and Cougars, but they prefer to just hang out near their caves. These crabs probably cruise around the ocean floor like they own the place... because they do.
