So, this is horrifying.
I was pretty surprised that crabs actually look like this and don’t just walk around on the sea floor dipping themselves in hot, melted butter. It really is no wonder why crab-meat is so expensive. Crab fisherman being the most dangerous job in the world aside, we probably have to pay the guy who handles these a premium to touch something so freaky looking.
Editors Note: I’m fully aware that this is a species of crab that is not typically eaten. I mean, look at it. Those claws and legs aren’t worth $14.95 a pound. There’s barely any meat. Throw it back.
