Would You Eat This Giant Crab?

This colossal red king crab was being sold this week at a Welsh market for £75 ($113). The unusually large crustacean measured 3-x-1 feet and was caught by Norwegian fishermen. While its meat is being described as naturally sweet, the crab also looks strikingly like a spider. Could you stomach it?

I don't eat seafood, so no. I don't know much about crabs, but I'm pretty sure there's nothing freaky about that one; it just didn't get caught earlier in its life, so it had lots of time to grow.

There is absolutely NO WAY I wouldn't eat it! We had king crab for my birthday. It's funny I used to not be into much work for so little pay (as far as the smaller crabs are concerned). But king crab definitely takes care of that!

Absolutely! I love seafood! The reason why it's big, it's because the crab is old...

I'd eat that in a second! That would taste AWESOME! It doesn't look any different than any other crab...just bigger and probably yummier.

mochick yup, crabs and spiders come from the same evolutionary group. But no thanks to a shellfish allergy I would not eat that.

Aww, I think crabs are so cute. That one is so abnormal and huge, I'd feel bad wasting it for food. Let it prosper where it belongs. That being said, I do like to eat normal-sized crabs.
