Giant Crab Goes to Aquarium Instead of Seafood Restaurantthe daily dish
Claude, the 15-pound Tasmanian giant crab, was caught by the right man. According to The (U.K.) Daily Mail, the colossal crustacean was found by an Australian fisherman who decided to sell Claude to a British aquarium instead of a fine seafood restaurant.
Claude, who would've made 160 crab cakes, took a 29-hour plane ride to reach his new home at the SeaLife center in Dorset, England. After arriving, the crab was given two weeks to get comfortable before being displayed to the public.
Now folks are welcome to visit and gawk at the U.K.'s largest crab. And Claude isn't even finished growing yet. Since the crustacean is still a juvenile, he is expected to double his weight, even though he's already 100 times bigger than a normal U.K. shore crab.
