Japanese Spider Crab, aka Crabzilla,  WTF!!  Straight from a Sci-fi movie!  I couldn't believe this horrible thing when I first saw it.

Where does it live? The Pacific Ocean.  This huge thing can actually live up to 100 years old and its legs can grow up to 15 feet long, the body about the size of a basketball. There is one living and breathing in the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham, Britain, and its legs measure 10 feet from claw to claw. It is the biggest crab ever seen! 

Crabzilla is a lethal predator of the deep but take it out of the water and the limbs cant support its body.  They have no real enemies other than mankind and it's a delicacy in Japan.
