The Mother Of All Crabs Saved From The Pot

Believe it or not this monster Tasmanian King Crab, named Claude, is only 15-pounds and 15 inches wide, and he has not stopped growing.

He is expected to grow to a massive 30-pounds and close to 20-inches wide.

The Tasmanian King Crab is a delicacy in its native Australia, but Claude was snapped up by a British aquarium worker who agreed to buy him and two other enormous crustaceans for a whopping $5,000.

They are now in quarantine at the Sea Life Park in Weymouth, Dorset, before they will go on display.
