Camping.

Plan 9 continues.

With all of those crabs running through a camp, this being Australia, I would be more concerned about what those crabs were running from.

"We kept our tents away from where we had eaten, but one of the families said the whole night they could feel one tapping on the outside of their tent."

Sounds like a great idea for a new Stephen King novel.

Get out the pot of boiling water. We're gonna feast.

There's a story in James Michener's "Tales of the South Pacific" with those crabs int. As they march, at night, across a metal roof people are sleeping under. Well, not sleeping because of the constant sound of crabs on the roof.

Loud LOL @ Le Pet!

"they are considered harmless and can be picked up and moved easily as long as you avoid their claws." -
I've known woman like that.

Ducking and covering to avoid N. C.

A bunch of liars trying to tell me there was not colonies of T Rex's and their spawn in every corner.

On vacation in Australia hiking on a popular tourist trail.

"Dad, I stepped in something."

"It's just T Rex poo, let me lift you out of there."

Smacks! @snookems

nursecindy is not the only one, snookems

They seem as benign as the cute baby skunks who ran across our feet during supper on a raft trip on the Green River. We were less thrilled as we cowered in the bottom halves of our sleeping bags as their parents marched across the plastic ground cloths.

Compared to the creatures usually featured in such stories about Australia, those crabs seem cute and cuddly.

Well, at least they're edible. The crabs, I mean, not the campers.

Holy oversized crustaceans, Batman!

...still more enjoyable when the word crab is followed closely by the word cakes (or legs).

Indeed, all species of crab are edible. I don't know if these taste any good (my guess is they don't), but at some degree of revenge can be had if you're hungry.

I'm not even camping here in the States. I'll go dayhiking but I want my Serta at night.

*Double Smacks* snookems.
My first thought was we're gonna need more garlic butter.

I agree with Wanderer, my idea of roughing it is finding a hotel without a remote for the TV and doesn't have crab cakes on the room service menu

This is THE key sentence in the report: "Then they started to climb up to the table, and another climbed onto the barbecue."

These are self-cooking crabs! What could be easier??? I'm with NurseCindy- get the garlic butter melting!

Giant Robber Crabs opened for Hootie & The Blowfish
