Giant Crab captured in Britain

Earlier this month, a British man captured a giant crab in Lyme Bay near Lyme Regis, Dorset. The crab had a shell width of 30.48 centimeters (12 inches) and it weighed 63.82kilograms (17lbs). It measures 2ft across and is thought to be the largest edible crab ever captured in British waters. Take a look at the picture above.

Paul Worsley, 39, who managed to haul the creature from the sea bed during a diving trip in Lyme Bay, said: "I couldn't believe it when I saw it. I've seen and caught crabs before but never one as big as this."
