I'm not saying I think the picture is real, it's probably a hoax.
But, if it is real, that sure is one big crab!
Here's the picture:

Supposedly, the man who took the picture thought that the thing was a sand formation shaped like a crab. He also claims to have sighted the giant a year ago when he took his son crabbing. He thought it was a large piece of driftwood, but realized that it was alive. And it was huge.
The picture seems to show a crab like the ones people eat, which can grow to 10 inches. This crab, however, is about 50 feet!
The largest known species of crab is the japanese spider crab that can grow to be twelve feet long.
I've seen these crabs before and they do get quite large.
