That's a neat looking crab. I'm not quite sure what species it is though but it looks it's from the spider crab family. How did you catch it?

Looks very evil looking to me ! :(

Ah I see, did you try those bento or cage traps on your past trip to BJT?

I didn't but I saw a lot of people pull up empty nets, and I was there for 2 days back to back so.. probably not going to try it any time soon :/

BJT probably isn't the best spot for crabbing anyway, I figured a place like that must have decent amount of flower crabs. I guess not. :(
